11 Free Virtual 360° Tours of Popular Museums Throughout the World

March 20, 2020

There are so many wonderful museums around the world that may be impossible to visit, but because of technology, we can still get our art and history fix by visiting them through virtual visits! Thanks to a partnership with Google Arts & Culture, there are thousands of museums available for us to visit virtually!

While it is impossible to list all of them here, I have compiled a list of some of the more popular museums that specifically offer 360° virtual tours. Project these from your phone to your smart TV, and you can have a family vacation from the comfort of your living room couch.  It's also a great way to take a homeschool field trip while staying home!

If not specifically directed to the 360° tour on the website, look for this icon in the corner of photos at the top of the page.
