Visiting a museum is always a great experience, but some museums might be too far away to see in person. Luckily, there are many museums worldwide that offer virtual tours, allowing you to see their exhibitions when it’s convenient for you from the comfort of your community at City View at the Highlands in Lombard, IL. Here’s a look at three virtual museum tours.

The Louvre

For fans of art, the Louvre is the place to be. It contains Western art from the Middle Ages to 1848, as well as art from a large number of ancient civilizations. Your tour begins just outside the museum. From there, you can go inside, where you can enjoy panoramic views of ten sections of the museum. Your virtual tour also includes up-close photographs of many of the exhibits. On your virtual tour of the Louvre, you are sure to see an assortment of paintings, sculptures, and even some impressive architecture.  

National Museum of Natural History

The National Museum of Natural History offers virtual tours where you can navigate through the museum by using the arrows to move from room to room, or you can pick specific parts of the museum that you want to see. You can even zoom in or out to get a better view of places of interest. Exhibit subjects include dinosaurs, insects, mammals, fossils, and gems. While not included as part of the main virtual tour, another link provides access to past exhibits.

Van Gogh Museum

If you are a fan of Vincent Van Gogh, taking a virtual tour of this museum is a must. You can virtually visit all four levels of the museum and see hundreds of works of art by Van Gogh. Pictures of many of his paintings are included at the bottom of the screen. By clicking on them, you can view the painting up-close and get the painting’s name. This is a nice feature for anyone who wants to know more about Van Gogh’s works.

Even if you don’t have the time or resources to visit a museum in-person, you can take a virtual tour. Contact us to learn what makes City View at the Highlands such a wonderful place to call home.
