Google Cultural Institute provides technologies that help communities to bring the treasures of their cultures, archives, national heritage places and other historical materials online. The aim of this global platform is to increase the scope and quantity of material from the world of culture that all can discover virtually, which will consequently lead to a democratization of access to culture and preserve it for future generations. Google Cultural Institute now collaborates with over 600 partners from 60 countries, and contains over 6.2 million museum objects created by over 8 000 artists.
