Whether you’re traveling for spring break or holed up studying — you can visit the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) online through the Google Art Project! In honor of International Women’s day this past weekend, the NMWA made 59 pieces from their collection available online as high-resolution images. Not only can you zoom into an artwork to see vivid detail, you can use Google’s “museum view” feature to zoom out and move around three floors of the museum.

Also in honor of International Women’s day, the Google Cultural Institute partnered with museums (including NMWA), archives, and cultural groups from around the world to launch “Women in Culture,” a special collection of online exhibitions highlighting achievements by women artists, leaders, and innovators.
