State Department Partners with Google Arts & Culture

Google users can view and tour historic locations digitally.

Last week, in celebration of World Heritage Day, the Department of State announced the new digital partnership between the Cultural Heritage Center (CHC) and Google Arts & Culture. Global audiences can now digitally visit cultural heritage sites that the Department of State helps tend to for free through Google’s cultural technology, learning more about what makes these places so unique. 

“The inaugural feature showcases the U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP),” said the department’s spokesperson. “Visitors can tour AFCP sites, such as Chankillo in Peru, the earliest known astronomical observatory in the Americas, or Wat Chaiwatthanram, the ruins of a 17th Century Buddhist temple in Thailand.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For State Department officials as they employ tech services for cultural learning.
  • For U.S. public officials as they promote World Heritage.
  • For Secretary Blinken to seek God’s guidance as he heads the State Department.
