The Louvre usually has a 4 to 5-hour line but now you can get direct access as many of the world’s top museums are opening their doors for free, virtually. And though this can’t compare to the feeling of actually standing in front of the Mona Lisa to realize how small that picture actually is, you also don’t need to fight your way to see it.

In addition to museums and art exhibitions–many that had to close early– have also opened their doors. This includes the SCHIRN in Frankfurt that recently held their exhibit of female artists: Fantastic Women. Besides famous female artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Frida Kahlo or Meret Oppenheim, visitors will be able to discover countless unknown but exciting artistic positions from over three decades of Surrealist art, such as Alice Rahon or Kay Sage.

If you’re able to connect your laptop to your TV or have a smart TV this makes for a great rainy day or any day activity. Grab a glass of your favourite wine and roam the world from your couch. Or make it a family “outing” and gather the kids. They can recreate their favourite masterpiece alongside the tour and you’ll not have to worry about bathroom breaks met with long line ups.
