The extension showcases hundreds of thousands of items from our astonishing collection and includes new photographs published as part of an ambitious project to reveal more of the collection.
It can be a struggle to discover ordinary, surprising or wondrous items from our collection so we hope this new extension enables you to explore more easily.
Visit the Chrome Web Store to try it for yourself.
Museum in a Tab was created by the Group’s Digital Lab, which explores new ways for audiences to engage with the collection.
It was inspired by Google Chrome extensions which show random items from collections such as Meow Met, which displays cats from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Art Up Your Tab which features artworks from Europeana.
You can share the item featured in each new tab via social media or click through to discover more through our online collection.
We built this extension for Google Chrome as it is the world’s most popular web browser, accounting for 60% of web traffic across the globe.
