Google Cultural Institute

The National Museum of Australia has established an online partnership with Google Australia to bring the Museum's objects and galleries to the world via the Google Cultural Institute.

The Google Cultural Institute provides an online presence for important cultural materials across the world, ensuring that these materials are digitally preserved to educate and inspire future generations.

Virtual tour

A selection of the Museum's collection is available on the Google Cultural Institute, including a virtual tour of the Museum's galleries. The tour uses Google's Street View technologies to create an immersive snapshot of the Museum's galleries and exhibition spaces, allowing users to experience a virtual walk-through of the Museum and to explore selected objects in detail.


The National Museum of Australia gratefully acknowledges the support provided by many private and institutional lenders to the Museum's permanent gallery displays.
