Virtual museums in the Google Art Project

Art Project resource from Google has recently been created for all art lovers. Google makes the world different. Thanks to it, we can see how Earth looks from space, how cosmos itself looks like, we got the most detailed and three-dimensional maps of the world, the most convenient and reliable email service, search engine and many other things that directly affect our lives.

Another incredibly useful service from Google is Street View, which allows anyone to walk along the streets of many cities in the world, without leaving computer screen. And now we can not just walk along the streets, but also enter buildings. However, not all, but in particular seventeen buildings, the world’s largest museums for now.

This opportunity becomes available due to the new service from Google called Art Project. At this point, seventeen museums from all over the world are available in Google Art Project. They are the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Palace of Versailles in Paris, the National Gallery in London, the Tretyakov Gallery, the Hermitage and many other institutions of this type and scale. But this list will continue to grow and expand.

With Google Art Project directly on the project site you can walk through the halls of museums, consider interiors, paintings, sculptures, read captions, the history of their creation, artists’ biographies, leave comments, talk about your impressions, give advice, etc.

Pictures have been taken with a resolution of 7 gigapixels. So connoisseurs of fine art can see every crack on the paintings, thoroughly study and enjoy confident strokes of their favorite artists.
