The impact of the coronavirus in the world caused the closure of practically all public spaces for prevention, but if you are a lover of art and travel, thanks to technology it is now possible to “visit” virtually some of the best museums in the world without leaving home, and best of all, for free.
These virtual visits will allow us to delight ourselves with works of art, located on the other side of the world and that we could not see otherwise than traveling to the city where it is located. These museums offer collections on their website and virtual visits through their social networks. But also tools like Google Arts & Culture and Street View that help cultural institutions to share their collections, even those that are no longer exhibited. So that you can meet and enjoy different works of art, in the following article we present some of the best virtual museums to enjoy from home:
