Museums, galleries, and theaters are closing in the world. The restaurants and bars lock their doors earlier than usual. Though, despite the quarantine, there is no need to feel blue. A lot of exhibitions in different cultural institutions are now available online. The editors of Beautiful Lifestyle magazine prepared a list of fascinating places to visit online.
The online-platform Google Arts & Culture gives access to worldwide collections and virtual tours of more than 500 museums and galleries. Only one click can teleport the viewer to the most famous exhibition halls all around the globe.
Thus, the platform allows the viewer to peek at the cabinets of the White House in the United States of America or to walk along the halls of Versailles in France.
The platform collaborates with different famous cultural institutions such as the Uffizi Gallery, the Tate Gallery, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There are several fashion-related exhibitions in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The audience can visit exhibits of costumes created by the fashion houses of Christian Dior and Coco Chanel. During the virtual tour in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the viewer can come close to any picture in the museum and read its description in English.
The National Gallery in London also opens its online doors to visitors. On the gallery website, the guest can not only walk along the museum halls but also find out detailed information about each masterpiece. The main exhibits are available for online viewers at the Dali Theater Museum and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History as well.
The Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation offers many virtual tours to the museums in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
