To celebrate the 60th West Side Story anniversary, Google launched a dedicated website featuring a virtual museum. The iconic musical and 'modern' retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is also remembered with help from Carnegie Hall, the National Museum of American Jewish History, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Museum of the City of New York.

The Google Arts & Culture initiative dives into the inspiration behind the classic story, the history in terms of post-war youth culture and the New York neighborhood, the play's social impact and original production. You can also experience the West Side Story anniversary through 360 degree videos, and take a virtual tour of some of its featured locations.
