Recently we highlighted the virtual tour at one of our favorite museums, The Guggenheim in New York. We’re excited to finally get back to visiting museums in person, but when traveling’s not possible or you just need a lazy Sunday activity, virtual tours are an amazing option! We love all of the creative ways that galleries and institutions are offering interactive and immersive online experiences.
Here are three other museums that we’ve enjoyed “visiting.”
Museo Frida Kahlo
The Museo Frida Kahlo in Mexico City allows visitors get a personal glimpse into the artist’s life. The museum is set in Kahlo’s home and filled with her paintings, renowned clothes, and photographs. Through Google Arts and Culture, visitors can virtually explore the garden, a source of calm and inspiration for Kahlo, as well as the kitchen, Kahlo’s studio. You can also check out Appearances Can Be Deceiving, a temporary exhibition which showcased Kahlo’s fashion,
The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston
The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston offers an outstanding range of pieces to browse, from ancient Egyptian mummies and ceramics, Japanese paintings, and the works of Master artists such as Rembrandt, Renoir, and Van Gogh. You can tour their impressive museum on Google Arts and Culture. However, we also recommend checking out their website for several fun extras, including “MFA on Youtube” for in-depth videos of lectures and programs.
Housed in the Boboli Gardens at the Uffizi Galleries in Italy, this grotto provides a fresh perspective as you explore the various fountains and sculptures, as well as mosaics adorning the walls within this space. Whether you are here from a historical standpoint or to appreciate the subtle beauty, its hard to not fall in love with this blissful oasis. Step inside this beautiful garden, here!
Through the website’s Hypervisions section, you can access various parts of the museum or get an in-depth look at some of the collections, featuring notable artists such as Da Vinci and Botticelli.
Whether you’re stuck inside on a rainy day or just in need of some art and culture, we hope these links help fulfill your creative minds. And if that’s not enough, our Baltimore gallery has a virtual walk through too! View what is currently hanging, and as always, our team is always here to answer any questions. Happy exploring!
