Virtual Museum Tours For The Art Aficionados Under Quarantine

With the world shut down for the foreseeable future and nothing left to watch on Netflix/Hulu/Disney+, now it’s time to move onto touring some of the best museums across the world.

I mean, it’s like taking a vacation without all the flying and packing, and you get to bring along snacks. Honestly, to be able to have Dorito fingers and see Michaelangelo’s David, is totally worth it.

Plus, no annoying tourists with their selfie sticks. That’s a win.
