It’s a strange time to be alive, and while we are all on lockdown, with little more to do than wait it out, there is one way that you can keep yourself and your family entertained, if you have access to the web.

Since we can’t travel right now, many people are turning to the digital world to take part in a virtual tour. From famous destinations to museums and other interesting places, a quick Google search will present you with a range of interesting options that will not only educate you but keep you entertained for hours on end.

To narrow down your list and make your search that little bit easier, we’ve sourced a few of the best virtual tours that you can do today.

  1. The Louvre
    A museum in the heart of Paris, The Louvre is not only world famous but it is also the one place that everyone visiting Paris hopes to visit (although the queue to get in can be off putting). The Louvre is the world’s largest art museum and with an online tour, you can visit all sorts of exhibits. See the famous Egyptian Antiquities, which features pieces from the Pharaonic Period, the Galerie d’Apollon, and the Remains of the Louvre’s Moat.
  2. The Vatican MuseumVisit Italy via the web and see the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Room, and St Peter’s Basilica. Other virtual tours available on the site include the Necropolis of the Via Triumphalis, the Excavations of St. John Lateran, and you can view an impressive collection of art.

  3. NASAWe all watched space programmes as children, and we all had day dreams about launching off the planet and exploring the stars. You can revisit your childhood when you explore the virtual tours offered by NASA. The virtual tours are offered by various NASA facilities, including the one in Ohio and the one in Virginia. These tours are free. To find more, you can visit the NASA website.
  4. Machu PicchuIn Peru, South America, this Inca site draws many people year after year. It was built in AD1450 and it sits on top of a mountain, literally. The amazing thing about this historical site is that it was built without help from wheels or animals. A 360 virtual tour is freely available online and it is immensely enlightening.
  5. Pyramids of GizaTravel to Cairo and beyond to see the famous Pyramids of Giza. Built more than 4500 years ago as grandiose tombs of the Pharaohs, these structures are almost certainly going to awaken your inner Indiana Jones. This virtual tour will bring the Pyramids into your home and give you the opportunity to see why they are a magnificent testament to mankind’s perseverance and ingenuity.

While you are unable to travel right now, a virtual tour might be just what you need.
