Things to do online while still staying at home:
While most museums and theaters are closed, there are some interesting opportunities via the Internet to visit museums around the world. Here are a few available from Google Arts and Culture: · British Museum, London This iconic museum located in the heart of London allows virtual visitors to tour the Great Court and discover the ancient Rosetta Stone and Egyptian mummies. You can also find hundreds of artifacts on the museum’s virtual tour. · National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. This famous American art museum features two online exhibits through Google. The first is an exhibit of American fashion from 1740 to 1895, including many renderings of clothes from the colonial and Revolutionary eras. The second is a collection of works from Dutch Baroque painter Johannes Vermeer. · Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam Anyone who is a fan of this tragic, ingenious painter can see his works up close by virtually visiting this museum – the largest collection of artworks by Vincent van Gogh, including over 200 paintings, 500 drawings, and over 750 personal letters.
