Inspiration: Google Cultural Institute


As part of my pursuit of innovation I have learned the importance of dabbling and finding ever ending sources of inspiration.  I currently subscribe to a number of art and design blogs and portfolio sites but recently stumbled across the Google Cultural Institute which is an amazing find.

This site features a number of museums from around the world and showcases some of their select pieces and exhibits.  I greatly appreciate the ability to see museums globally, some of which are ones I have visited and loved (Ateneum in Helsinki and the British Museum) and ones I have not (Museo Galileo and the Islamic Museum in Qatar).  There are other special exhibits such as  the world wonders project which gives you a “street view” of the sites as well as the LIFE photo collection.

You can spend hours getting lost in the site and it is well worth the free visit.
