Museums are some of our most beloved destinations. Unfortunately, most of them have been closed since March and it is unclear when they will re-open. If you are longing for a little culture and education, you can actually visit some of the world's best museums virtually. As reported by Andrea Romano, thanks to Google Arts & Culture, we can still participate in online tours and continue to gain knowledge about art, history, and science.

Romano highlights the following 12 museums in the article:

  1. The British Museum, London
  2. Guggenheim Museum, New York
  3. National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
  4. Musée d’Orsay, Paris
  5. National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul
  6. Pergamon Museum, Berlin
  7. Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
  8. Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam
  9. The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles
  10. Uffizi Gallery, Florence
