What is Google Arts & Culture? Teaching Tips and Tricks

Google Arts & Culture is a free online portal to real-world art, culture, and historical collections. So rather than charter a bus, get permission slips, or board a balloon with Jackie Chan, you can visit and explore the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens in New York, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Acropolis in Greece, Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, and the Tokyo National Museum, all in one day without leaving the comfort of your classroom. Did we mention itโ€™s FREE?
