Throughout the world, museums are working hard to bring their communities some light and inspiration during this strange time of distance. Museums are places that provide education and history, joy and discovery, but most importantly, we work to bring people together. Stay connected to your favorite art community by checking back here for new blogs regularly, The Hyde’s Instagram, and Facebook page. The Hyde will also be starting a Facebook Group this week! Make sure to join the group to share artwork, creative ideas, and community support.
Today The Hyde would like to bring you on a digital expedition to the Louvre in Paris and the Boston Children’s Museum. Both museums offer virtual tours that allow you to explore the gallery spaces at your own pace and from the comfort of home.
Online at the Louvre, you will find artwork from Delacroix, Rembrandt, and Tintoretto in the exhibition The Advent of the Artist. Explore Egyptian antiquities, the remains of the Louvre’s moat, and much more!
Show your little ones the Boston Children’s Museum virtual tour, where they can see exhibits such as Bubbles, which is part of the John Hancock Science Playground and gives children a chance to experiment and investigate together by creating all sorts of bubbles. The Construction Zone is a space where children can dig, climb, and build! This is a virtual experience that will inspire young minds to create their own science investigations at home.
