To celebrate International Museum Day tomorrow (May 18), we’ve gathered up some of the awesome virtual museum tours that you can go on right now!
The State Hermitage Museum, better known just as the Hermitage, is one of the oldest and largest museums in the world. If you can’t make it to the famous Winter Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia to see the world’s largest collection of paintings, click the pic above!
The Smithsonian, it must be said, has an incredible virtual tour available! I’m probably going to go get all wrapped up in it after I finish writing this post!
The Museum of the World is an online tour from The British Museum and Google that offers a timeline of artifacts from around the world, arranged by region and time. Click on any artifact, and you can find pictures, text, audio, geographic information, and links to related objects. Neat!
You can even tour Georgia Aquarium – the world’s largest – right from your computer!
And of course we wouldn’t want to leave out the museum in the featured image above – the Louvre also offers virtual tours.
What are your favorite museum? Let us know in the comments!
