During this difficult time of travel bans and social distancing, be sure to take advantage of the iconic museums around the world that are offering free virtual tours.

Obviously, a virtual tour is not the same as experiencing the city and exploring different exhibits in person. However, these virtual museum tours provide a great opportunity for home travel!

You can explore a number of virtual museum tours from the comfort of your couch, even while wearing pajamas. So grab your family and some snacks and enjoy these boredom busting virtual tours.

  1. We haven’t done this yet, but it’s on my list of things to do – I figured we can mirror it to our TV and all enjoy it on the big screen.

  2. I’m loving all these virtual opportunities that people are sharing. It’s nice to have little exotic field trips each day.

  3. Ordinarily a virtual museum visit is not something I would be interested in – I would much rather go and visit in person. But since we’re not allowed to travel right now I’m thankful that so many places are offering virtual visits as an option. It’s a nice change of pace from being home all day, and something the kids enjoy too. I have 4 kids (age 3-11) and it’s hard finding something that will please everyone.

    1. Yes, virtual museum tours can be incorporated in to homeschooling lessons. There are so many ways these tours could be a learning tool.

    1. Sounds interesting, I haven’t tried one. Might be fun to revisit one I have already been to before!

    1. Yes! I’m about out of shows I want to binge watch and these virtual museum tours are a great way to see the cool artifacts, art, and everything else they house right now.

  4. Thank you for this list! It’s so helpful to have the all compiled together. My favorite in person museum is the National Gallery of Art, so I’m so glad they are doing virtual tours.

    1. Yes, fun times via all virtual tours. Who would have thought? I’m hoping we can get back to traveling again soon.

  5. So many great museums are offering virtual tours. It’s a great way to see some amazing art and spaces while we can’t travel.

    1. Yes! These have always been out there but honestly, I never looked in to them before. Virtual tours are a great way to see places until we can travel again.

  6. My children, and I, have been having so much fun taking part in these virtual tours. It’s pretty amazing to get to “see” a place from your living room. Your list contains a few that I didn’t know about, so thank you!

  7. Exploring virtual museums is a great idea. I will have my girls check out the ones in NY. We were planning a trip this summer, so this will be great!
