Technology giant Google, through the Google Arts & Culture project, is offering a different experience in terms of culture. In addition to providing thousands of online exhibits, the project offers the possibility to explore more than 2,500 museums through a feature very similar to Google Street View. Users can virtually visit museums all over the world, the project offers 360° views of places that can often be inaccessible due to financial costs or distance.

Altogether there are 2,779 museums available for virtual visits. Each site has been visited and registered through Google Maps, making even the artworks they house available online. The tool allows visitors to search by the name of the museum, the artist or even the work of art. The descriptions are very detailed, from the date to the material used in of the paintings, sculptures or photographic works.
