The year 2020 has found its uniqueness in the abrupt transition of numerous services to the online space. This trend has not ignored the cultural side of our lives. Large famous museums, as well as private galleries, provided a unique opportunity for art lovers to visit exhibitions without leaving their homes.
We have collected 5 of the best virtual galleries in the world, offering this pleasure. If it is not yet possible for you to pack up and fly to the Louvre, take a walk on it via the Internet. Believe me, aesthetic pleasure even under such conditions will be on top!
1 We have already given a little hint, but let’s talk about the first place in the list separately. The Paris Louvre offers tours of some of its parts. For example, you can look into the hall of Egyptian antiquities, carefully examine the exhibits and get additional information about their history. Agree, it’s nice to look outside the walls of the largest museum in the world on a Friday evening.
2 No less attractive seems to us the opportunity to walk through the halls of the National Gallery of Art in Washington. Virtual viewers have access to a collection of 1200 paintings, including collections of paintings of the Italian Renaissance, Dutch, and Spanish Baroque.
3 After enjoying the first two galleries, you can go to the majestic Musei Vaticani, consisting of the collections of the Pius Clement Museum, the Etruscan and Egyptian Museum, the Sistine Chapel, the Chiaramonti Museum, the village of Raphael, and some others. It will take no less time to inspect the complex than if you arrived at its door in person. The museum collections available online include many ancient sculptures, paintings, and palace decorations. You can walk around the surrounding museum grounds with a real online guide.
4 Another famous museum offering virtual tours of the halls and some of the exhibitions is The British Museum in London. Its collections include exhibits from the dawn of human culture to modern times. Online you can walk through most of the halls, get information about each exhibit in the permanent exhibition, or take part in temporary exhibitions.
5 Completing our selection of the top virtual museums in the world – The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Within its walls is stored an unsurpassed collection of masterpieces of art and culture, which is available to everyone in the framework of the Met 360 project. A virtual platform for viewing one of the most striking museums of our time, its territory, the temple of Dendera, and, of course, internal exhibits.
Large famous museums, as well as private galleries, provide a unique opportunity for art lovers to visit exhibitions without leaving the comfort of their homes.
Of course, the list of virtual museums and galleries in the world does not end there. Wherever you are in the world, the virtual doors of the National Museum of Natural History, the Uffizi Gallery, the NASA Museum or the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam will always be open for you. This is a truly unique experience and the opportunity to get special inspired while strolling among the beautiful pieces.
