Thousands of Australian cultural artefacts and virtual online tours of galleries are now a few clicks away as Google Street View goes inside the country’s top museums.
We’re excited to see six museums and galleries from the AARNet GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) community listed among the fourteen new participating institutions announced at the Australian launch of the Google Cultural Institute today.
They are the Australian War Memorial (including Street View tour), the National Museum of Australia (including Street View tour), the Australian National Maritime Museum, the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House, the Powerhouse Museum and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.
The museums will join London’s Tate Modern and New York’s Museum of Modern Art in the digital institute.
