Google Cultural Institute launches 1st Nigerian historical archive in partnership with Pan African University

"We’re delighted to welcome our first ever Nigerian partner to the Google Cultural Institute . Come and check our the Pan-Atlantic University’s archive of stunning Historical
photography of early 20th century Nigeria"

What's the Google Cultural Institute All About?

Google partners with hundreds of museums, cultural institutions, and archives to host the world’s cultural treasures online.

With a team of dedicated Googlers, we are building tools that allow the cultural sector to display more of its diverse heritage online, making it accessible to all.

Here you can find artworks, landmarks and world heritage sites, as well as digital
exhibitions that tell the stories behind the archives of cultural institutions across the globe.

Many cultural institutions have extensive archives of information, much of which cannot always be put on public display. Our partner
museums and curators have created exhibitions to bring these archives to life and make them available online. Explore Historic Moments, Cultural Figures, Science & Technology, and other categories to browse through photos, videos, manuscripts and documents on a wide range of topics – from Nelson Mandela’s handwritten prison letters, to the ‘La Dolce Vita’ era in Italy and now, the first ever Nigerian partner, the Pan-Atlantic University, and their archive of stunning Historical photography of early 20th century Nigeria.
