Virtual Opportunities ~ Travel the World

March 1, 2021

Although many of us are beginning to see “daylight” with the advent of the Covid-19 Vaccine becoming more available, it has been a BORING and confining year. But there are some ways to occupy yourself and feel a little less isolated…

Here are just a few:

The Boca Raton Museum of Art offers a wide range of cultural events that help inspire, engage, and educate, visit their event page to see what’s happening.

The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam offers a robust, beautifully shot tour in 4K via its YouTube channel, and in partnership with Google Arts & Culture, you can also explore extremely high-res photographs of the pieces in the collection as well as a Google Street View walkthrough of the museum’s galleries.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium in California offers various LIVE cams (some have designated hours) so choose from you favorite(s) whether it’s birdwatching, penguins, sharks, or more and simply ENJOY! By the way, MBA does need donations to maintain the many animals while they are closed if you are able.
