Google launches Open Gallery to help any museum or gallery create online exhibits

Google has been working with a range of museums and galleries to deliver fascinating digital exhibits via the Google Cultural Institute for a while. Now, however, the Internet giant is opening up some of this technology for any cultural institution to create online exhibitions.

Google Open Gallery can be used by small local galleries or large national museums, helping them publish some of their physical artifacts to the Web. Google hosts the actual content on the / domain, and doesn’t charge for using the technology.

Find out more in this short film showing how the Belgian Comic Strip Center used Google Open Gallery to create an exhibit around its Art Nouveau building — the Waucquez Warehouse — using drawings, photos, and more.

To apply to use the Google Open Gallery you will need to request an invite.
