The National Park Service is home to one of the world's largest museum systems. More than 380 park museums, 45 million objects, and 76,000 linear feet of archives help tell the stories of America's land, people, and events that shaped the nation. The NPS Museum Management Program partnered with the Google Cultural Institute to share these collections digitally to help people discover the unique stories of our nation's heritage.

Visitors to the National Park Service "channel" can view more than 3,800 works of art, artifacts, and records, as well as a Centennial One Object Virtual Exhibit This virtual exhibit features museum objects from more than 350 national park sites in commemoration of the National Park Service's 100th birthday in 2016. Users can also build their own collections to share with others or take virtual tours of several parks and historic homes using Google's "street view."
