Virtual Tours: Amazing Spaces You Can Explore Online

COMPILED BY Lindi Brownell Meiring

While many local and international galleries and museums have had to temporarily close in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can still find artistic inspiration online.

Take the Norval Foundation in Cape Town, for example. You can take a virtual tour of this art centre and sculpture garden here, as well as view previous exhibitions on its YouTube channel, which the gallery is currently updating on a daily basis (follow @norvalfoundation on Instagram to keep up to date).

Thanks to Google Arts and Culture, you can take virtual tours through a number of international art museums, from the Guggenheim in New York City to Musée d’Orsay in Paris. You can also view full collections online, go inside artist’s studios in 360°, and tour amazing spaces, like the Sydney Opera House, and so much more.

Here are just some of the many virtual experiences you can explore online:
