So, what if there’s no new Jurassic Park movie on the horizon. Load up the Google Arts and Culture app and you’ll be knee-deep in fossils before you know it. Fedora and vintage leather bag not required.
Dino-nuts and Tyranno-fans, here’s a fantastic reason to install Google’s Arts and Culture app (Android and iOS) - the new natural history exhibit. Featuring contributions from the world’s leading museums and universities (you’ll find distinguished names like the Smithsonian, the the Natural History Museum in London, the US National Park Service's Dinosaur National Monument, and our very own Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya in the nearly-five-dozen-strong list of contributors to Google’s project), it’s a treasure trove of info for anyone who’s keen on learning more about natural history.
Install the app or head over to the website to check out over 300,000 photos, videos and documents from these museums. You'll find stuff on dinosaurs (duh!), fauna of the Indian subcontinent, the risks to biodiversity, and much more.There are also plenty of Google Cardboard walkthroughs, and since it’s a Google shindig, you also get a bunch of of 360-degree videos on YouTube.
