MUSEUMS AND GALLERIES AROUND THE GLOBE are offering virtual tours of their spaces, from Florence’s Uffizi and Barcelona’s Picasso Museum to the National Palace Museum in Taipei and National Museum Bangkok. The opportunity to indulge in the arts during this bleak time is something we are pretty thankful for (thank you, Internet), especially since we now have access to some of the world’s most renowned masterpieces for free.

But New York’s iconic Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is taking things to the next level by publishing more than 200 of their art books and catalogs online, in addition to offering a virtual tour of their space

The museum has spent years digitizing exhibition catalogs and art history books putting together one of the most comprehensive and exciting digital libraries from a museum we’ve come across. 

Dive deeper into art history with titles like Picasso and the War Years and China, 5000 Years: Innovation and Transformation in the Arts. Or, explore catalogs of the works of Egon Schiele and his mentor Gustav Klimt or a flip through pieces by Mark Rothko from a retrospective exhibition held at the Guggenheim in 1978.

If you consider yourself a modern art buff, you can also now scroll through every exhibit held at New York’s MoMa since 1929.
