V is for Virtual Visits #AtoZChallenge

Posted April 25, 2020 in A-Z Challenge / 8 Comments

The Blogging from A-Z Challenge continues today. Every day throughout April (except Sundays) I’ll be posting a range of ideas and tips for keeping your family entertained at home. It will include arts and crafts, games, learning ideas and imaginative activities for all ages. I thought it would be particularly useful while we’re all self-isolating or socially distancing, though it can be used for any time of year.

Letter “V” is for Virtual Visits. Although tourist attractions are currently closed to the public, many museums and galleries are offering free online experiences so that you can visit them virtually from the comfort of your sofa! These events are a fantastic way for all the family to learn new things and stave off lockdown boredom. Below is a list of all the virtual tourist attractions I’ve come across online so far.

Art Galleries

  • Enjoy Pollock and Monet at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
  • See Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, Caravaggio’s Medusa, and Titian’s Venus of Urbino at the Uffizi in Florence, home to an amazing collection of Renaissance art.
  • Check out Van Gogh and Cezanne masterpieces at Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
  • Visit London’s Tate Britain to see the works of J.M.W Turner and more.

History & Science Museums

For more galleries and museums, check out Google’s arts and culture collection, which has virtual tours of 500 top attractions around the world, and even the Eiffel Tower.
