Yesterday, we let our brain melt, while ironically, we watched Frozen 1 and 2 back to back several times. Today, we’re taking a stand! We should be learning one thing every single day. Put the remote down, let’s get mentally stimulated! How about we check out the Guggenheim gallery? Or the Musée d’Orsay in Paris? The planet is literally at our fingertips right now because the world’s best museums are offering virtual tours to aid people in this difficult, but necessary isolation period.

Here are 10 museums that you can “walk through” from your couch.


At the Museum of Natural History (yes, the one from Night at the Museum) you’ll see everything from life-sized dinosaurs to exotic ocean creatures. The only thing we know for sure you won’t see, is overnight security officer, Larry, because Ben Stiller, like you, is probably quarantined at home.

Where: Washington, D.C.


This Museum offers two different tours, one of which is a gallery of art from Dutch Baroque painter Johannes Vermeer, the other being a collection of clothing from America’s colonial and Revolutionary eras.

Where: Washington, D.C.


This contemporary art space is actually where you’ll find works like Van Gogh’s Starry Night and the Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali. No big deal, they just have some of the most famous paintings known to man.

Where: New York City, New York

In addition to their collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary art, you can also tour the famous and almost upsetting (for those who get motion sickness) staircase in New York’s Guggenheim Museum.

Where: New York City, New York


The Van Gogh Museum has, by far, the largest collection of Vincent van Gogh art and artifacts. Here, you can check out over 200 paintings, 500 drawings, and over 750 personal letters up close-ish and personal.

Where: Amsterdam, Netherlands


No, that’s not a typo! We can’t pronounce it either. The Rijksmuseum has acquired works by Vermeer and Rembrandt and has a large collection of Dutch Golden Age art if you’re into that.

Where: Amsterdam, Netherlands

Where: London, England


This popular gallery is full of incredible French artists who lived between 1848 and 1914, including Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin and Van Gogh. This is actually where you’ll find his Self-Portrait.

Where: Paris, France


The Louvre is best known for being the home of the Mona Lisa, but they’ve also acquired works by Michelangelo and Raphael. Here you can see the Aphrodite sculpture, the Regent diamond and the crown of Louis XV! If you’re going to check anything out on this list, we think it should be this one.

Where: Paris, France


This is the least “well-known” gallery on this list, but it’s absolutely worth checking out anyway, if not for the art, then for the building, which was designed by Giorgio Vasari in 1560. It’s beautiful.

Where: Florence, Italy

Honestly, taking a virtual tour is almost exactly like going to a museum, anyway! You can’t touch the art there and you won’t be able to touch it from your couch. For an ultra-realistic experience ask your quarantine buddy to ask you what your interpretation is for every single piece in the highest-brow way possible. We’re feeling cultured already!
