Introduction to Best Museums In The World
Beyond providing enough food and other supplies for 2 months, heading into body-quarantine may have many complicated problems. It probably also means you’re in for a lot of frustration in terms of content, a lot of Netflix as well as a lot of internet surfing.
And there is a way, when you’re limited to your house, to get a little education and culture. Google Arts & Culture partnered up with more than 2500 museums and galleries around the world to offer aerial views and multimedia exhibitions by some of the world’s most famous museums, as per Fast Business.
You have “go over to the exhibition” now, but you never have to quit the sofa.
The selection of Google Arts & Entertainment involves the British Museum in London, that Van Gogh Museum in Stockholm, the Guggenheim in New York City, and, practically, dozens of other locations where you can learn about art, science, and philosophy. For students who are looking for time to remain on top of their learning when schools close, this selection is particularly strong.
