museums and galleries you can visit virtually

With the current pandemic in the world keeping most people at home and halting all economic and other activities, it is pretty frustrating being indoors.

The good news is that though we are indoors, technology has really proven itself in other areas like virtual learning, and now virtual tours for the art lovers who can’t bear being away from museums. Most museums and galleries now offer virtual tours of their facilities.

They include:

Guggenheim Museum, New York
