10 Top Museums You Can Explore Right Here, Right Now — Google Arts & Culture


Found this post in here at Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Many teachers in Norway take their students on field trips to London, Paris, Berlin and New York. Why not explore the famous museums before you go? And for those who are not able to travel (most I would think), a virtual field trip might be the answer.

10 Top Museums You Can Explore Right Here, Right Now. Take a virtual journey to breathtaking museums all around the world.

Finding your way to a museum isn’t always easy: maybe it’s raining and you’ve misplaced your umbrella, maybe you don’t have the energy after a long week of work, or maybe the museum is a hop, skip and a plane ride away to a completely different country.

Luckily that doesn’t have to stop you. So sit back and enjoy tours of 10 top museums available to explore with Street View – right here, right now.

Google Arts & Culture is one of the best educational platforms for virtually exploring world museums. It allows you to search for, access and explore beautiful artworks from all around the world. You can create collections of your favorite artworks and share them with others, take ‘guided tours curated by experts’, step ‘inside the most famous museums in the world and visit iconic landmarks’. You can also use the search tool to find local museums and cultural events around your area.

The purpose of today’s post is to share with you this excellent resource from Google Culture featuring top 10 museums to virtually explore through the use of Street View. You can use it with students as a learning activity in class and help them explore world cultures and learn about famous artworks. The featured museums include: The British Museum, London; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Musée d’Orsay, Paris; National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul; Pergamon Museum, Berlin; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Uffizi Gallery, Florence; MASP, São Paulo; and National Museum of Anthropology, Mexico City;
