Virtual Days Out

Museums & Galleries

The National Gallery in London – Tour the rooms and wings, and zoom in on the artwork to see some of the highlights (and no need to face the crowds of visitors which usually flock here).

The British Museum – The museum teamed up with Google Earth for the tour. It’s worth noting that it doesn’t offer a walkthrough experience, but it’s a great way of getting a taste of what will be on offer the day you can go and check it out in real life.

The Postal Museum London – explore the Mail Rail tunnels that run deep beneath the streets of London

Victoria and Albert Museum London -  The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is one of the world’s largest museums of decorative arts and design.

Founded in 1852 and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the V&A is located near the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, and the Royal Albert Hall in London,

The Science Museum London - Explore our collection beyond the museum floor and find out the fascinating histories behind even the smallest objects.
