Just because many of us have gotten used to being locked in our homes doesn’t mean that we have to miss out on everything. It’s not just us that thinks so. Many places around the world have taken their fun online, including virtual museum tours that mean no one has to miss the fun.
Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
One of the annoying aspects of heading to a museum is getting rushed through the rooms or missing something as the crowd blocks the way. That’s no longer a problem at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History as its virtual museum tour allows people to take in 360 degrees of each room at their own pace. It even includes every exhibit found at the museum.
National Museum of Anthropology, Mexico City
Mexico has seen plenty of changes throughout the years. However, the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City is dedicated to keeping the pre-Hispanic land of Mexico alive through the museum. Now, the virtual museum tour allows people to enjoy 23 rooms filled with exhibits, including plenty of Mayan artifacts.
Metropolitan Museum of Art
The Met Gala is usually one of the biggest events of the year. Sadly, like most others, the event was canceled in 2020, meaning many of us never got the chance to see the incredible costumes, paintings, and outfits on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. That was until the museum decided to go all virtual on us and brought the magic to our own homes. Now, people can browse through 26 of the exhibits on offer at the click of a button.
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
The incredible collection available at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston makes it one of the most comprehensive art museums on the planet. Many people were disappointed to learn they wouldn’t be able to view it all for themselves. Thankfully, the day was saved by a virtual museum tour. Wannabe visitors can look through 16 exhibits, including many from the 21st Century Designer Fashion collection.
The Getty Museum is spread over two locations, meaning it has two virtual tours. It features several pieces of art from around the world that have been brought together in one great museum. Each tour focuses on various aspects of the museum, including one titled “Eat, Drink, and Be Merry” that’s all about food from the Renaissance and Middle Ages.
Just because most of us won’t be heading to Paris anytime soon hasn’t stopped us from getting a virtual museum tour of The Louvre. The museum is the largest in the world and is famous for its glass pyramid, but that’s not all that draws people to The Louvre. In fact, one of their virtual exhibits is all about Egyptian antiques.
The world has been a little strange in recent times, but we can find comfort in virtual museum tours as they try to bring a little normality and fun back into our lives. Does it get better than that?
