The activities do involve some prep, but even just watching the videos is fun and educational. There is also a site for mini lessons called Mystery Doug (that you can find here: mysterydoug.com). Your free login for Mystery Science will work for Mystery Doug.

Virtual Field Trips
13 Museums You Can Visit Online
(Adapted from an article by Andy Golder)
- The Guggenheim, in New York City
The Guggenheim Virtual Tour
You can tour the Guggenheim Museum's collection via Google Street View, which allows you to actually "walk" the halls of this architectural marvel. When you approach the artwork, Google will provide details about the piece (most of the time).
- The Musee D’Orsay, in Paris, France
The Musee D'Orsay Virtual Tour
Google Street View also takes you inside the famous Musée D'Orsay in Paris, which is home to many famous works, including van Gogh's famous self-portrait and Whistler's Portrait of the Artist's Mother.
- The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, in Seoul, South Korea
The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Virtual Tour
The huge collection of South Korea's Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art is also available for virtual tours through Google Maps. Some of the exhibits that involve motion or video (like the piece pictured above) will only be in still images, unfortunately, but there's plenty of canvas art and photography to enjoy, too.
- The J. Paul Getty Museum, in Los Angeles
The J. Paul Getty Museum Virtual Tour
The Getty Center offers virtual tours through Google Street View, so you can not only view the artwork and sculptures on display but also enjoy the amazing architecture. If there's an area of the museum's grounds that you can't reach with Street View, you should at least be able to find lots of photos via Google Maps.
- The Uffizi Gallery, in Florence, Italy
The Uffizi Gallery Virtual Tour
The Uffizi Gallery is home to the art collection of the de' Medici family and features famous works like Botticelli's Birth of Venus or Caravaggio's Medusa.
- The Boboli Gardens, in Florence, Italy
The Boboli Gardens Virtual Tour
Your movement might be a bit limited, but you can still virtually visit the Boboli Gardens, which are part of the Pitti Palace in Florence. Just in case you want to see some greenery after wandering museum halls all day.
- Machu Picchu, in Cusco, Peru
Machu Picchu Virtual Tour
While you won't quite get the same effect as being there in person, being able to walk through the ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru is still pretty cool through your computer screen.
- The Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo, in Sao Paulo, Brazil
The Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo Virtual Tour
The Museu de Arte de São Paulo in Brazil houses some incredible works of art, but the thing that really sets it apart from other art museums is the way the works are displayed. Mounted with concrete blocks and glass, these artworks look like they're floating in midair.
- The Museo Dolores Olmedo, in Mexico City, Mexico
The Museo Dolores Olmedo Virtual Tour
A virtual tour through Mexico's Museo Dolores Olmedo includes archaeological pieces from Mexico's history and permanent exhibits featuring the work of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
- The Art Institute of Chicago, in Chicago
The Art Institute of Chicago Virtual Tour
In this virtual tour, you'll find a huge collection including works from Monet, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Cézanne.
- The Palace of Versailles, in Versailles, France
The Palace of Versailles Virtual Tour
You can walk through France's Palace of Versailles, including the famous Hall of Mirrors, via this virtual tour. In addition to the lavish architecture, the palace includes canvas art and beautiful murals. Ms. Jeffreys has actually visited the Palace of Versailles and normally it is so crowded it is hard to see things. This is better than the real thing!
- The Tokyo National Museum, in Tokyo, Japan
The Tokyo National Museum Virtual Tour
Japan's Tokyo National Museum has both art and antiquities on display from Japan's history, as well as from neighboring Asian countries. In this virtual tour you can see all kinds of historical artifacts, as well as famous works like The Great Wave Off the Coast of Kanagawa.
- The National Palace of Sintra, in Sintra, Portugal
The National Palace of Sintra Virtual Tour
The National Palace of Sintra is an exceptionally well-preserved palace and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The architecture is stunning and well worth a look through Google Street View.
