Google has just launched its awesome app, Arts & Culture. With your smartphone or tablet, you can easily delve into artworks, artifacts and more from over 1000 museums, archives, and other organizations worldwide.
Some fantastic features include:

In an official blog post published by Google last week, it says: “There’s much to learn about our shared cultural heritage. We’re sure you’ll want to see some of the artworks in real life too—and the Google Arts & Culture app is there to help.”
According to Wired magazine, “Google hopes these new features will help all museumgoers (virtual or otherwise) draw connections between the vast repository of artistic, cultural, and historic artifacts dispersed throughout the world’s museums.”
What if you can immerse yourself in cultural experiences across art, history and wonders of the world—from more than a thousand museums across 70 countries:
• Search for anything, from shoes to all things gold
• Scroll through art by time—see how Van Gogh’s works went from gloomy to vivid
