When it isn't capturing (tiny) city streets and picturesque locations, Google's Street View team also catalogs the collections of some of the world's most iconic cultural buildings. With help from the Google Cultural Institute, we've already explored the 4,500 artifacts inside the British Museum, but for its latest project, the organisation has hopped back across the Atlantic to New York and inside the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

The institution, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and finished in 1959, has made over 120 artworks from its collection available for viewing via the Cultural Institute. Google engineers stitched together images taken by drones, tripod and "trolley" cameras to create a 360-degree experience of the museum's distinctive galleries, which you can explore from the comfort of your smartphone or desktop wherever you are in the world.
