You can now explore The National Museum of Scotland online!

Using the same system as Google Street View, you can now explore everything on offer at the National Museum of Scotland from the comfort of your own home.

Hosted by Google Arts and Culture the entire museum has been uploaded online, alongside 1000 up close pictures of specific exhibitions.

This is the first time that a museum in Scotland has been integrated into this system. Although, most of the artworks from the National Galleries of Scotland are available to be viewed as static images.

This comes after an initiative for the museum to become more accessible to everyone, head of Digital Marketing Rob Crawston talked to the BBC about the new system saying: “Digital technology is offering us unparalleled opportunities to do just that, and our partnership with Google Arts & Culture gives people from around the world a novel new way to explore the museum and discover its world-class collections.”
