Traveling may be at a halt but the exploring doesn’t stop. Luckily, with modern technology, we are able to take virtual tours of monuments and museums around the world. If you are interested, here are AVEN’s top, free virtual tours around the world.

Museum Virtual Tours

Louvre

First, we have the Louvre where you have not one, not two, but three virtual tours of this Parisian museum. That includes the original perimeter of the Louvre when it was first built as a fortress by king Phillippe Auguste. You can also explore the Egyptian Antiquities gallery plus a recently restored part of the Louvre called the Galerie d’Apollon. It is known for its magnificent ceilings with historical paintings.

Musée d’Orsay

We continue on with the VR tours in France over at the Musée d’Orsay. This retired train station is now home to iconic works of art. Most notably is Vincent van Gogh’s “Self Portrait.”

Vatican Museums

Next, we are going to make our way over to Rome, Italy where you will find the most revered ceiling artwork in the entire world. More specifically, the Vatican museums. Step into the Sistine Chapel and virtually gaze at the paintings by Michaelangelo.  

Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery

We are traveling back over to America now. In Washington D.C. there’s the one and only Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. If you didn’t already know, the Smithsonian is home to 23,000 artworks including a collection of portraits of U.S. presidents and first ladies.

Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum

We are going to end our list of museums in Madrid, Spain at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum. Here you can virtually gaze upon a grand exhibit of the iconic Dutch painter, Rembrandt.

Nature Walk Virtual Tours

The virtual tours do not stop at museums. Explore caves, oceans, caverns, and forests with Arts and Culture digital tours. They are beautifully shot and also feature a sound element with a narration of the area you are diving into.

Street Art Virtual Tours
