Although COVID-19 has put a halt on current travel plans, that doesn’t mean we have to press pause on staying engaged and excited to explore the world when we can. Travel is a powerful tool for bringing people together, and thanks to technology, we are still able to experience the world with our friends and colleagues even during these unprecedented times of social distancing. Our team has compiled a list of resources that give you the chance to discover the world without ever leaving your home.
Take a virtual tour of the exhibits on display in some of the most famous museums in the world without ever getting off the couch. Explore the National Museum of History, the Guggenheim, or many other museums here and here.
Want to dive a little deeper? Our friends at Context Travel are now offering Context Conversations. These 90-minute seminars let you discover more about a museum or destination first-hand with well-versed and popular scholars. Select your date and time here, and schedule your seminar to enjoy the conversation from home.
