The British Museum recently teamed up with Google’s Cultural Institute to provide virtual gallery tours to those who cannot visit the museum in person. Since its founding, the British Museum has housed some of the world's most important artifacts. Now these items can be viewed from anywhere in the world, thanks to a technology-led initiative.

As part of a collaboration between the British Museum and Google’s Cultural Institute, patrons will now be able to view the museum's extensive collection online. Google’s Cultural Institute has helped to digitize numerous artifacts from the museum's collection in order to make them accessible from anywhere in the world. The museum also offers a virtually gallery tour that spans nine different floors and over 80 galleries.

The digitized collection makes it possible for more people to view and enjoy all of the treasures that the British Museum has on display.
