They are also providing map facilities of the museum.
It has three tabs of art, history, and wonder. It also having a menu like partners, projects, Artists, Mediums, Art Movements, Historical events and Historical figures and places Google has partnered with various museums, art galleries, historical foundations and parks and also the locations themselves to bring this experience to smartphones.
Reviews of Art and culture app says that it helps a user to same time because of virtual tour instead of visiting places like museums. It is free of cost and content rich app of google. it will soon include the topics of each and every famous museums and artist
This app has limitations that it doesn’t cover every topic of museums and artists.
“limitation, when it came to searching for common topics like Picasso’s Blue Period or Adele Bloch-Bauer in the search bar since neither of those things has a dedicated page or even gallery. And even prolific artists like French artist Vigée Le Brun (who created more than 800 artworks) only has 9 items to view on the app. Exploring individual museums like the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D.C. for instance”. - Forbes
