Project Will Allow 360-Degree Tours
LONDON— Soon, The Mona Lisa and the contents of the Louvre can be seen online, all thanks to a new project by Google.
Google can add yet another astonishing feat under their belt after their latest project was announced.
Google's Street View is no longer staying outdoors— they are now in London, going inside into some of the world's most famous art galleries. 17 galleries have given Google access to offer 360-degree virtual tours of their art.
Google's Art Project will expand to other countries soon.
The 360-degree view will allow people to view the art in the galleries as if they were there in person walking around.
