    Have enjoyed this app more than most. Thank you so much for bringing such culture into our homes at such a personal level.
  • Where’s the art tho?

    Zooming in to see the brush strokes while casting to a 4k projector is pretty next level. That said, I’m here to see some art: would love more comprehensive collections of artists work, more details, and more attention on the core browsing experience. Some pieces have very little information, could you at least pull from wiki? No comments on the apps other features. Less selfies more art please!

    The navigation is horrible. What happened?..
  • An extra star out of respect for the content

    This app was promising but so cumbersome to navigate. Touching certain links pulls you out of your tour with no way to go back. Many of the 360 angles snap back if you let go or pull too far. Very frustrating and not worth the download. Check out videos on Vimeo or other video sharing sites that don’t pester you about premium memberships every 3 seconds.

    It always brightens my day. So much to learn and explore. I love it and always forget about it but once I open the app I’m in heaven. I love that you can save favorite articles or pictures. There are so many ways to appreciate art within the app so it can fit any need or style of learning and enjoyment. It’s endless! I feel like I never have enough time to browse but there’s constant information so I don’t feel like I missed out on anything, it just keeps coming. Love it!!
  • Weird to get around

    Such a weird app to navigate, I find myself hitting the home button after a search because there is no back button, and then having to type in my search again to get back to where I was. The content looks decent but too cumbersome for me, the UI needs work.
  • None of the features work correctly

    None of the AR based features work correctly. It would be better if google focused on their search engine instead of making half baked apps.
  • Great app, only one thing

    By Maester Pycelle
    Great. I only wish I could swipe through my favorites rather than clicking, backing out, and clicking again. Also, it would be nice to have different options for organizing my favorited works—by medium, time period, etc., or even reversing the order— rather than having to always scroll through them from my most recent to the earliest that I favorited; once you gather a decent number, it’s very tedious to navigate them always in the exact same order.
  • Doesn’t work on iPad Mini 2 - iOS 12.4.4.

    According to the App Store, this should work on my iPad mini, but it does not. I tried two different experiences: Visiting the leaning tower of Pisa and taking a tour of a park in France. In both cases, the app would constantly hang after the first slide and would state that an error occurred and it was reloading. After a few minutes of this I quit the app and tried starting again, but same result. I also noticed that there are two icons for my account on the upper right and I suspect there should only be one. Too bad. Looks like an interesting app.
  • A great contribution

    This app is in itself an art work of Google. Google has bridged the gap between me and the stock of art knowledge.
