The worlds most famous museum is now open for virtual tours

and it's free too!

The Louvre in Paris has opened its virtual doors to allow people to explore the museum at their leisure from the comfort of their own homes. If you’ve ever wanted to check it out, there’s no easier way and you won’t have to jostle with the crowds to see your favourites!

The website allows you to explore the stunning architecture, beautiful views, and all the rooms and galleries that dot many halls. There are several tours to check out including The Advent of The Artist, Power Plays, The Body in Movement, and Founding Myths: From Hercules to Darth Vader, all of which explore different works, styles, disciplines, and narratives of art history.

There are also some other pieces of content (although some of it is only available in French) like podcasts, virtual reality experiences, and special activities just for kids!
