5 luxurious virtual museums must visit
In 2011, Google made a luxurious gift to all of us - launched the digital platform Google Arts & Culture. Google conducts virtual tours of the Louvre and the Natural History Museum in Berlin, and the American Metropolitan Museum has digitized tens of thousands of works from its collection. Many of us had to cancel the planned trips due to the coronavirus pandemic, but we didn't offer to panic - but to plunge into the virtual world of art.
Google Arts & Culture is definitely the first stop on your virtual art trip, and you’ll have to stay there for at least 3-4 hours. You can search for works of interest to you by periods, techniques, directions or artists.
This is the most popular museum in the world. The Louvre has excellent virtual excursions: you can "walk" along the ancient Egyptian wing and its basement, there is also a tour of the Galerie d'Apollon. Please note that the site also has a pretty heading “exhibit of the day”, its museum staff selects every day and devotes an interesting review to it.
Take a virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel and see the work of the great Michelangelo - it is quite possible even now.
Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid
Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid
From March 12, key Spanish museums, like their counterparts in Austria, France, and Italy, were quarantined presumably until April 3. Among them is the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum of Madrid. In mid-February, a large Rembrandt exhibition opened here, which did not work fully for a month. So that viewers around the world can get acquainted with it, despite the quarantine, the museum quickly prepared a virtual tour of the exhibition.
British museum, London
It is the best archaeological museum in the world and the second most visited in the world among art museums, after the Louvre. A couple of years ago, together with Google, they opened access to their luxurious collection and now online you can see more than 5 thousand exhibits.
Frida Kahlo exhibition, Mexico City
We also offer you to visit the recently opened interactive exhibition of Frida Kahlo at the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City. More than 800 paintings, photographs and art objects of authorship by Frida Kahlo are now available on the Google Arts & Culture platform.
