One of the many things we missed during lockdown is being able to go to out to museums or visit the zoo. Well i know its not quite the same but you can still visit your favourite places virtually. In todays blog post we will explore some of the best ones we found. We love it if you let us know what you think in the comments.
The British Museum is the world’s largest indoor space on Google Street View. You can go on a virtual visit to more than 60 galleries. See highlights like the Rosetta Stone in the Egyptian Sculpture Gallery or discover gems like the beautiful textiles in the Sainsbury African Galleries. The museum is also part of googles museum of the
world project where you can find a timeline of artefacts to explore.
