Visit online museums known worldwide (Virtual Tours)
The coronavirus pandemic has blocked borders, suspended thousands of flights, and tourism has been through a sad time. Authorities around the world recommend people to stay in houses, stay isolated, avoid crowds. By default, all the sights, museums, cultural and shopping centers are lost. But we know that all these measures are taken for our health, for all. We will have time to travel and enjoy the social life after the pandemic passes with the new COVID-19.
And if you're still in the house, I recommend walking through some famous museums around the world. That after, the other days, I sent you to visit some zoos live.
The NASA Museum
NASA offers free virtual tours in Langley Research Center (click) in Virginia, as well as in the Glenn Research Center in Ohio (Click). Space Center Houston also has an app that offers virtual tours, augmented reality experiences and videos and audio stories about space exploration.

The focus is on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton and houses a wide range of weapons and military aircraft, including the presidential aircraft of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon.

The work is not only one of the largest art museums in the world, but it is also one of the most iconic historical monuments in Paris.

The GOOGLE ART project (hundreds of museums)
The Google Art Project takes you to the White House, through the Museum of Islamic Art in Qatar and you can even admire the street art in São Paulo, Brazil. Here it is full list of museums you can visit. Google has collaborated with over 1200 cultural institutions around the world to archive and document numerous art objects and to offer museums virtual tours.
