The search engine has made museums around the world available digitally for users to view and learn about art

Google’s Arts & Culture team is using the company’s search engine to give users the opportunity to visit art museums digitally. This new addition to Street View allows users to learn about artworks all over the world.

With the new feature, users can search for individual artworks, museums or artists whose work might be displayed in multiple places. For now, the selection is limited to several hundred museums around the world. When the user enters a digital museum, the surrounding walls display the art as they appear in reality. If a user clicks on the piece of art, they can learn about the artwork’s history and the person who created it. Users also have the opportunity to examine select pieces of art closely.

The art search feature is available on Android and iOS devices. All of the digital art pieces were approved by the museums who host them.
