Good stories keep us engaged and transport us to different places. Cultural institutions are masters of the art of storytelling. Since its foundation, Google Arts & Culture has recognized and embraced this power, collaborating with these organizations to combine their exceptional expertise with our technology, empowering them to create immersive exhibitions, virtual tours, and much more.
That’s why for International Museum Day, we’ve teamed up with over 50 museums globally, to launch a new digital tool that helps museums and curators present their collections in virtual 3D gallery spaces. With just a few clicks, institutions can personalize every aspect of their galleries, from text to audio to color schemes and beyond, opening up new spaces for cultural storytelling. The Pocket Gallery editor tool will soon be available to all of Google Arts & Culture 3000+ partners from 80 countries.
Selected institutions from Mexico to Indonesia, Nigeria, the US and India, have already had the opportunity to curate their treasures and personalized every aspect of their Pocket Galleries galleries. Today we’re unveiling over 60 new galleries curated by our partners using the Pocket Gallery editor tool.
