A museum is a spiritual place. People lower their voices when they get close to art. - Mario Botta (Swiss architect)

Wouldn't it be great to hop a plane on a whim and visit the world's best museums? 

If you're like me, a working- class stiff, with responsibilities, bills to pay and not a lot of free time you know this is a pipe dream at best. But just like long distance is (allegedly) the next best thing to being there, the internet brings these places to you with just  a few clicks. I use art apps and too many sources to list but here my top five online museum sites to visit when you need your art itch scratched.

The Louvre You can take a 360-degree look at the museum, and click around the art to get additional information on their histories.

The Solomon R. Guggenheim, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the building, while quite impressive in person, you don't have to go to New York to get an up-close view of some of the priceless artwork inside.

Dali Theater Museum is completely dedicated to the artwork of this iconic artist. It features rooms and exhibits which I've visited with my VR headsets. He is also buried here.

Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the world's largest and finest art museum which collection includes more than two million works of art spanning five thousand years of world culture, from every part of the globe.

Google Arts and Culture partnered with more than 60 museums and galleries from around the world, the Google Art project provides virtual tours of museums with Google Street View technology. I really like this one for general browsing and there's also the app available for both Android and IOS


  1. I'd like to visit more museums. They seem to place you in a hush mode so you may reflect on the reason you came- peace, tranquility, interest.
