Developed in full screen mode with an emphasis on high definition images, these exhibits were created jointly by the teams at Google and the Société d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel and provide web visitors with an overarching view of the context leading to the birth and construction of the Tower as well as its inauguration and first visitors.
Nearly fifty images, maps, prints and photos from the Eiffel Tower Heritage Fund are waiting to be discovered in addition to a never-before-heard audio recording of the voice of Gustave Eiffel, allowing visitors to completely immerse themselves in the world of the Tower!
In order to be accessible to a wider number of people around the world, these exhibits are available in four languages: French, English, Spanish and Portuguese. And each visitor can recommend the exhibits and share his or her experience on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
A bridge between history and modernity through panoramic Google Street Views
For the first time, the teams at the Google Cultural Institute have incorporated panoramic Street Views into the exhibits, allowing visitors to alternate between the historical archives and present-day images.
These 360° views offer a unique look at the top and second floors of the monument.
