These Museums Are Currently Offering Virtual Tours During Self-Isolation

Stay inside!

Many of us are currently in self-isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic, and stores, business and more have closed their doors worldwide in an effort to flatten the curve. Those that are able to work from home are encouraged to do so, and we’re all advised to stay indoors and not travel on public transport or interact with people like normal. It is a weird time, and it is hard to stay motivated when information is scarce and uncertain, but to shed some light on the lockdown, a handful of prestigious museums around the world has made their collections available to view online.
