12 Incredible Free Virtual Museum Tours

While travel may have abruptly halted and with it, closed all museums to the public. Don’t despair, you can now take a virtual tour of many of the finest museums in the world from the comfort of your own home. 

Innovative museum curators are starting to cater to a whole new online audience with stunning virtual tours of their buildings and vast archives. From the Getty Museum in LA, designed by Richard Meier to The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao designed by Frank Gehry to The British Museum designed by Sir Norman Foster to our very own National History Museum here in Dublin. Now you can get cosy on the couch, pop on the kettle and become enlightened by past and present masters of all the arts, and all for free.  

This is an amazing opportunity in particular for parents and teachers to bring children on tours of the great museums of the world that for many, may never get the possibility to visit in reality.
