Working with Google

The National Museum's Google Arts & Culture presence includes the interactive sport, convict love token and A Different Time collections.

It also includes virtual tours of our front and back exterior spaces and the interior of the Landmarks gallery. There have been many changes since the Google Street View capture in 2015. We're planning a recapture of the exterior soon.
