Google Art Project: 10 Virtual Art Exhibitions to Visit Online

The Art Project by Google provides a beautiful platform to show and to explore art. Museums like the Tate Gallery, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Uffizi in Florence have been part of the project since the beginning in 2011. Today the platform features 596 collections, 193,942 objects, 43,933 user galleries and 808 exhibitions.
