See the World Now: Virtual Tours for Different Interests

Safe travel may still be beyond our horizon, but don’t let that stop you from exploring. Here’s a curated guide to dream destinations and experiences that you can visit virtually--for now.

Museums and galleries
Miss getting lost in galleries filled with paintings and sculptures? This list is for you.

The Vatican
Step into the Sistine Chapel (minus the gawking crowd) and gaze up at Michelangelo’s legendary frescos. The tour also includes areas that are normally off-limits to the public, including the Niccoline Chapel and Raphael’s Rooms.

The Louvre
Home to the most enigmatic smile in the world, the Louvre offers seven virtual tours, from Egyptian antiquities to works by Rembrandt and Delacroix.

Metropolitan Museum of Art
The largest art museum in the United States, the Met offers live virtual tours led by a museum guide. A maximum of 40 people can join the 60-minute online tour which costs $300 per adult group. You can also watch their six award-winning videos created using spherical 360° technology here.

Studio Ghibli
Tickets to this museum are always in demand, with advanced bookings required. Visitors are prohibited from taking photographs, so their YouTube channel offers an inside look at this beautiful, but secretive space. 

Street Art with Google Art
View online exhibitions, take a virtual walking tour, and see street art come to life with animated art. 

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the possibilities? Check out Google’s list of 10 virtual museums around the globe.

Castles and palaces
Get your dance cards and ballroom gloves ready for these royal virtual tours.

Buckingham Palace
Are you experiencing withdrawals after watching the latest season of The Crown? Here are virtual tours of Buckingham Palace to tide you over. See the grandeur of the Throne Room and the Grand Staircase. Imagine being received in the White Drawing Room.

Prague Castle
It is the largest ancient castle in the world. Let your fingers do the walking around this fairytale castle: Marvel at the stained glass windows of the St. Vitus Cathedral and enjoy the views from the sightseeing terrace in the Southern Gardens.

Edinburgh Castle
Walk around this historic fortress that looms over the city of Edinburgh. One of the oldest fortified places in Europe, it is the most besieged place in Britain.

Palace of Versailles
Get fun facts about this former principal residence of French royalty. Examine artifacts in 3D, and take a virtual tour of the gardens, bedchambers, and the opulent Hall of Mirrors.

Nature and wildlife
From colorful marine life and African wildlife to rugged canyons and breathtaking glaciers, explore nature’s wonders from home.

National Parks in the United States
From the fjords of Alaska to the volcanoes of Hawaii, explore the hidden worlds of five National Parks in the United States. Rangers take you on a virtual tour to places most people never go.

WILDwatch Live safaris
You don’t need Robert Redford to show you the beauty of the African wilderness. Catch live streams of twice-daily, three-hour-long game drives. You can ask the guides questions on YouTube or by using #wildearth on Twitter. Check out past episodes here.

Georgia Aquarium
From otters and penguins to beluga whales and piranhas, the Georgia Aquarium has live streams of an array of underwater creatures.
