Are you a museum and an art-loving family? We certainly are! Lucky for us, several museums in Athens have decided to deal with the coronavirus emergency by offering visitors the possibility of going on e- tours in their museums. Virtual tours in Athens’s museums are the newest trend. Here are the most important museums in Athens, Greece that you can visit on virtual tours from the comfort of your home.

Acropolis Museum

The celebrated Acropolis Museum is one of the most import museums in the world. On its website, families can explore the museum through its exhibition halls. Through Learning Resources, the museum website connects to online games for kids and other digital educational platforms.

The Museum of Cycladic Art

The Museum of Cycladic Art has some of the most important collections in the world. The museum is now offering an online tour of its landmark exhibition ‘Cycladic Society: 5,000 Years Ago’. Presented as part of efforts to mark the museum’s 30th anniversary, the online exhibition explores the structure of Cycladic society during the early Bronze Age (3200 to 2000 BC), the natural environment, the occupations of the islands’ inhabitants, their social or religious customs and their beliefs, through selected items of the early Cycladic culture.

The Benaki Museum

The Benaki Museum houses Greek works of art from prehistorical to modern times and an extensive collection of Asian art. Although the museum initially housed a collection that included Islamic art, Chinese porcelain and exhibits on toys, its 2000 re-opening led to the creation of satellite museums that focused on specific collections, allowing the main museum to focus on Greek culture over the span of the country’s history.

Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation

For modern art, take a virtual tour at the newest museum addition to Athens city; the virtual tour of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation includes masterpieces and some rare works by the European artists such as van Gogh, Gauguin, Monet, Degas, Rodin and Picasso, as well as works by distinguished modern Greek painters.

Virtual tours are the next best thing to visiting the actual location. Virtual tours can also be a great resource for families who want to research or prepare their trip. If you want to do more virtual travelling, have a look here: 10 best virtual tours in Greece.
