Cross borders

While they are separate websites, some Voyages on Google Earth link to presentations and exhibitions on Google Arts & Culture. It's easy to navigate between the two so you can make the most of both when exploring a topic in depth.

Look for links

If an item on Google Voyager links to Google Arts & Culture, then it might mention Google Arts & Culture in its title. Otherwise, you might discover blue Read more or Explore more links to Google Arts & Culture in the right-hand panel when exploring a voyage.

Jump across to Google Arts & Culture

Click on a link and Google Arts & Culture opens up in a new tab in your web browser. The new tab is separate from the Google Voyager tab, so you can easily go back to it.

You can explore that presentation and follow the recommendations to explore everything that Google Arts & Culture has to offer on the subject.

When you've finished exploring Google Arts & Culture, you can simply close that tab and go back to the Google Voyager tab to pick up your voyage where you left off. You might find another link to Google Arts & Culture on the next page, taking you off on another adventure.
