In times when travelling and visiting events or exhibitions is not always easy, Google Arts & Culture offers itself as an almost inexhaustible source of contributions about architecture, art, music, nature or science.
A little more than ten years ago, a Google team began to make art and culture on the Internet accessible to a wider audience in the time made available to them by the company for free projects. In cooperation with a number of cultural institutions from more than ten countries, the team started the Arts & Culture project without knowing exactly what it would become.
Today, it has become a comprehensive platform that allows people to visit places and cultures, museums and exhibitions from the comfort of their sofa in the form of virtual walks.
PCtipp recently posted a longer article on this online and writes there: “Recent Arts & Culture projects include CERN’s “Big Bang AR” app, a detailed documentary on the 50th anniversary of the moon landing in 2019, or as part of the “Versailles: The Palace is Yours” project, Google shows a selection of high-resolution scans and 3D models.”
