Thanks to the Google Cultural project people from all over the world are now able to see more than 290 works of art from the Croatian Museum of Arts and Crafts and 154 works from the Gallery of Naive Art – Hlebine online…

Google Cultural Institute is an initiative unveiled by Google following the 2011 launch of the Google Art Project. The Cultural Institute was launched in 2011 in an effort to make important cultural material available and accessible to everyone and to digitally preserve it to educate and inspire future generations.

The Cultural Institute included over 6 million items – photos, videos, and documents and has partnered with a number of institutions to make exhibition and archival content available online, including the British Museum, the Museo Galileo in Florence, and the Museum of Polish History in Warsaw.

“It is of importance that the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zagreb has been added in the Google Cultural Institute project as people all over the world will have access to information about exhibits and collections of one of the leading Croatian museums which was opened 136 years ago,” said gallery Director Miroslav Gašparović.
