Museums That Offer Virtual Experiences

Doing our part to flatten the curve means lots of time spent indoors. If you’re on the search for ways to make the most of these unusual times, brushing up on your art appreciation and knowledge of history is an excellent pastime. While museums of all sizes are currently closed worldwide, many of these prestigious institutions are offering virtual tours. For art enthusiasts who are also on the hunt for apartments for rent, be sure to choose a location that offers easy access to Boulder’s museums. Once the pandemic has eased, you can enjoy our city’s local gems, such as the Boulder Museum of ContemporaryArt or the Museum of Boulder. For the time being, treat yourself a virtual tour of these collections and features presented by iconic museums:
