Virtual Art Walk
Dream of travelling to the world’s most illustrious museums and landmarks? Tick them off your list virtually with Google Arts & Culture. The online platform, which functions similarly to the tech giant’s Street View service, lets art lovers “walk” around art institutions on their smart devices – but that’s not all. Zoom in on thousands of exhibits; look through text, photos and videos; and build your own collection of favourites. There are tons of renowned locations to check out, like Musée d’Orsay in Paris, The Tokyo National Museum and Seoul Museum of Art.
