Quarantine is not the reason to stop being curious and learn. In such a difficult period, many galleries, museums and theaters offer people various ways to visit their activities (exhibitions, plays, etc.) And we want to tell more about possible ways to visit such places. And let’s start with one of the most important museums of the UK—the British Museum.
1. Virtual Museum tours with Google Street View
Have you ever used Google Street View to “visit” other places? And in general, do you know that this technology allows you to go on a virtual visit to more than 60 galleries and the Museum is the world’s largest indoor space? It’s time to test this great technology to see highlights like the Rosetta Stone in the Egyptian Sculpture Gallery or discover gems like the beautiful textiles in the Sainsbury African Galleries.
2. Keep exploring with virtual galleries
One more way to explore the Museum is to visit the virtual galleries on its own website. You can see Old Masters such as Dürer and Michelangelo or see new and exciting contemporary pieces. Choose whatever you like as you’re sure to find something to your taste.
3. Go behind the scenes with the Museum Podcast
Are you sick and tired of sitting alone and want to find some company on your journey around the Museum? Easy breezy. Join presenters Sushma Jansari and Hugo Chapman by downloading the British Museum Podcast. They will take you on a journey behind the scenes at the British Museum—meeting scientists, curators, authors and artists along the way.
4. Liven up home learning with our digital resources
Almost the whole world is now trying to adapt home-schooling. Parents have not only to take care of their children but also help them gain new knowledge.

The Museum offers materials on diverse topics such as Sutton Hoo, Egypt, Rome, prehistoric Britain and the Vikings.
