as many of the world’s most famous cultural institutions close their doors and the world adjusts to a more housebound lifestyle, it’s a well-timed feature inviting people to enjoy art, music, and more from the comfort of their own home. the vatican museums offer 360-degree tours of the sistine chapel and raphael’s rooms, while the van gogh museum shares over 200 paintings from the dutch post-impressionist, 500 drawings and more than 750 letters. munich’s alte pinakothek has also joined google, showcasing its art treasures in the permanent exhibition with all its galleries digitized in 360° images.
