Take a 360 Degree Tour of Miniature Models of Famous Landmarks: From the Taj Mahal to The Great Wall of China

Pretty cool item. A new exhibition in New York, called “Gulliver’s Gate,” shrinks the world’s most famous sites–everything from the Taj Mahal to The Great Wall of China–into miniature versions of themselves, roughly 87 times smaller than the original. In the video above, you can take a 360 degree tour of parts of the exhibition. Click on the clip, swirl around, and check out the tiny creations. It’s particularly neat if you try it on your phone.

Below, find an introduction to the project and don’t miss their behind-the-scenes footage.
