I was very sad when the Google Expeditions app was no longer available. I utilized the app with classes to virtually visit different countries, colleges and historical places.
Good news! Many (not all) expeditions can now be found in Google Arts and Culture. Google Arts and Culture is a website and app with virtual tours of art museums around the world, artist features and much more!
The site includes virtual fields trips that students can access through a mobile device or a laptop. Students do not need to log into the site to access. Click here to view information about virtual fields trip in Google Arts and Culture.
To get started, click here for a list of virtual field trips organized by subject. Visit Mars or Mount Everest. Learn more about photosynthesis or a historical figure like Leonardo Da Vinci.
Search Google Arts and Culture by clicking on the magnify glass in the top, right corner.
If you are looking for a previous expedition, use the search feature to locate what you need. I was able to find a previous Tenement Museum virtual tour in Google Arts and Culture. I also found the college virtual tours as well.
