  • Cool; but full screen art please!

    By MK500
    Please allow us to view the art image full screen in retina mode (high dpi) with black borders. The text menus at the top distract when you just want to take in the piece of art. Simple fast (cached) pinch-to-zoom in this mode would make examining brush strokes and details great! I really like the idea of this app. Clearly an immense amount of work and resources have been dedicated to this; which I appreciate. The informative text and background info is awesome. But the interface feels clunky; like a web site from a decade ago.
  • Very educational

  • No portrait matching feature?

    By Pumpkintine
    If there is I can’t find it. That was the whole point of downloading this app, if I can’t in the next 30 min it’s getting deleted.
  • Simple App to Appreciate Art

    Cool categories and interesting facts culminate to an immersive art appreciation experience.
  • A gift

    By Charteand
    The best part of your Arts and Culture app is to focus on ONE artwork at a time, difficult to do in a museum. However, the vital experience of being IN a museum, continues to be unique, because it allows us to relate personally to the artwork. Bravo, Google...
  • Not following iOS navigation standards

    By Mvniekerk
    Another frustrating Google application that disregards the swipe to go back gesture in ios. App is extremely slow to start up - 30 seconds at least. Loading of video and image artifacts inside the application also slow to load. Frustrating experience in total.
  • Cute and great matches!

    By rls1980k
    These are so much fun to use with my daughters. The photos lineup pretty well - realistic snapshots and my kids love making silly faces to try and fool the app into crazy matches.
  • Wow! What a resource!!

    By Cor Carriero
    Google Arts and Culture is an amazing resource - a treasury of links to over 1,000 international museums, galleries and cultural institutions. The entire site is searchable in many cases in a variety of ways- alphabetically, chronologically, geographically, and by medium. As an educator I am awed and excited by its potential for use in every curriculum area! As an everyday person I get caught up in exploring and learning every single time I open the app. I am transported to far away places, caught up in the beauty of innumerable works of art, and educated by the “stories” that are included.
  • Very accurate
