The coronavirus pandemic has changed almost everything about our day-to-day life. With more people than ever being encouraged to stay at home, it’s become difficult to enjoy the entertainment we often have at our fingertips. Luckily, several museums worldwide are stepping up to the challenge of providing entertainment in the era of COVID-19 with free online tours. Here, we list some of our favorites!
Guggenheim Museum, New York City
The Guggenheim Museum is arguably as famous for its spiral staircase as it is for its immense collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary art. Now, you can tour the famous staircase from the comfort of home using the museum’s virtual tour capabilities. You can even view entire exhibits using your computer screen. How cool is that?!
Musée d’Orsay, Paris
Take a virtual trip to the most romantic city in the world when you use Google Arts and Culture to virtually walk through this Parisian museum. If you’re an art history buff, it’s safe to say that you’ll love “strolling” the halls of Musée d’Orsay, which houses works from famous artists like Monet, Cézanne, and Gauguin.
National Museum of Anthropology, Mexico City
Prefer museums that house important cultural artifacts? Enjoy something other than art when you virtually tour the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. With 23 different exhibit rooms, there’s plenty to see, including ancient artifacts from the Mayan civilization.
