As we settle into our new reality, it's important to remember that New Orleans can still be experienced from home. Whether it's virtually visiting a museum or enjoying a workout from a New Orleans studio, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the city and its many offerings, while also following the rules. Below, four things that you can do today.
Through a partnership with the Google Cultural Institute, the New Orleans Museum of Art is offering high-resolution tours of its permanent collection. The museum, which opened in 1911, hosts an impressive permanent collection of almost 40,000 objects. While a virtual museum visit can only capture so much, the museum expressed in a letter that they hope the digital experience brings viewers peace and inspiration during this challenging time.
