If you’re like me, you probably would love to travel right now but can’t because the entire world is shut down over the coronavirus outbreak. You may not be able to tour the world’s greatest museums in person, but many of them are offering virtual museum tours in the meantime. Major places such as Musée d’Orsay in Paris, MASP in São Paulo and National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne made virtual reality tours so that we can entertain ourselves with some culture.
Vatican Museums, Vatican City
One of the most famous cities in the world located in Italy, Vatican receives more than 2 million people a year. We start this tour in Saint Peter Square and there’s even an virtual tour guide to tell more about the place! Also includes places such as St. Peter Basilica and the Sistine Chapel.

Musée de Louvre, Paris
The Louvre is known for holding the Mona Lisa painting and Michelangelo sculpture. But there’s way more for you to see, like their extensive collection of Egyptian Antiquities and the Galerie d’Apollon.
It’s estimated that you would have to spend almost two weeks in Paris in order to visit everything inside. Differing from the Vatican Museums, you only can visit a few galleries inside Louvre. Check it out here!
