You can soak up some culture while wearing your pajamas and take an online tour of several exhibits at this iconic Paris museum. The tour even takes you to the Louvre’s basement, where you can explore the ancient remains of the Louvre’s original moat. Be sure to check out the Egyptian Antiquities virtual tour and get up close and personal with the Great Sphinx of Tanis.
Boston Children’s Museum
Powered by Google Maps, this virtual field trip is pretty close to the real deal. Virtual visitors can “step” through the museum’s three levels and even walk through the queue, but you won’t find any lines here. They have also provided resources to play and learn at home while you can’t venture out to the museum.
The British Museum
This engaging and interactive tour is super cool. Check out hundreds of artifacts that can be searched by era, category or region of the world. Round clay tablets from schoolchildren in ancient Mesopotamia, a crocodile-skin suit of armor from ancient Egypt or even the Rosetta Stone are just a few of the treasures you can check out from home.
This virtual tour is perfect for those interested in European history or for those who just want to pretend they’re strolling around Florence for a bit. This world-famous gallery is known for its stunning Renaissance pieces like “The Birth of Venus” by Botticelli and “Medusa” by Caravaggio. Besides the fascinating step-by-step Google Arts & Culture gallery tour, there are four online exhibits you can choose from, and you can zoom in on high-quality photos of the art for optimal detail viewing.
