In the shadow of a global pandemic, it’s never been more important to isolate yourself from the rest of the world in self-imposed quarantine. But that doesn’t mean you should be sacrificing your ability to stay connected, educated, and entertained. And that just got a whole lot easier to manage thanks to Google Arts & Culture.

In light of how many public spaces have shuttered for the time being, Google has come up with a remarkably clever way to grant people access to visual art around the world. Partnering with over 500 museums around the globe — including NYC’s MoMA, LA’s Getty, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Florence’s Uffizi Gallery, DC’s National Museum of Art, and legions more — they’ve created a unified site where people anywhere can virtually tour some of the world’s greatest art collections. That means you can gaze upon the works of Andy Warhol, Caravaggio, Munch, Bosch, Money, or whomever else floats your boat — all for free and all without breaking your social distancing pledge. Simply click your mouse a few times and immerse yourself in culture.
