Google Arts & Culture (formerly Google Art Project) is an online platform through which the public can access high-resolution images of artworks housed in the initiative’s partner museums. The project was launched on 1 February 2011 by Google, in cooperation with 17 international museums, including the Tate Gallery, London; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City; and the Uffizi, Florence.
Virtual field trips help students see and experience the world in new ways. Students can get in the center of 360-degree photos and 3D scenes with historical importance. Self-guided tours enable anyone to explore anywhere. The tours are great activities for classrooms and for home use.
