App reviews: Google Arts and Culture, Weather Way
Apr 16, 2016 7:06 AM
Field trips were some of the best parts of being in school - taking little breaks away from the daily grind to explore something or somewhere outside of your everyday experiences. Google Arts and Culture aims to capture a little bit of that magic with an app that lets you explore paintings and other artifacts up close, as well as find out more about the artists and museums around the world. Plus, there's no shushing or scolding about getting too close to the exhibits. You can take 360-degree tours of certain cultural sites, such as the Prambanan temples in Indonesia or even Niagara Falls. (Beats going over in a barrel.) Although the list of sites to visit is far from comprehensive, there are plenty of destinations to excite your inner adventurer. In any case, it's fun to go on little digital field trips during the day.
