You may not be able to go out and explore Singapore as much you’d like while in Phase 2 (much less travel the world!).
But thanks to the power of technology, you can still visit some of the world’s most famous museums without having to get off the couch.
Google Arts & Culture has teamed up with over 2,500 museums and galleries around the world to create a series of virtual tours and photographic highlights from each institution. The digital platform features some of the most prestigious museums and heritage sites on the planet, sharing treasures from the likes of the British Museum in London (shown at top), the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and even the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
While it’s hard to beat the experience of strolling through a museum in person and enjoying a piece of fine art with your own two eyes, it’s nice to know that Google can, or at least attempt to, fill the gap in these uncertain times.
