The National Museum of Scotland can be toured via Google StreetView




The National Museum of Scotland has become the first museum or gallery in Scotland available for exploration online via Google. Using Google Arts and Culture's museum view experience, which is similar to how Google's Street View works, tourists can view the 20,000 objects on display at the National Museum. The virtual display also includes 1,000 pictures of objects from the Edinburgh museum's collection.

It's the first museum in Scotland that can be toured online, but not the first in the world. The Taj Mahal in India, the Uffizi in Florence and the Palace of Versailles in France have also opened up their exhibit in a similar way, giving visitors from around the world a novel opportunity to explore their interior.
