One of the best options to learn and have fun at the same time from home
With museums closed and archaeological sites cordoned off, one of the best options for learning and having fun at the same time from home is virtual tours.
It coincides that five of the most important sites in Mexico invite us to visit them these days with new showrooms and new multimedia files every day; among them are:
1. THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS
The museum has eight virtual rooms where there are exhibitions of pictorial, photographic and sculptural art, as well as aerial and general views of the three levels of the installation.
In the same place, we have the opportunity to visit the Museum of Modern Art, the José María Velasco Gallery, the National Museum of Architecture, the Tamayo Museum of Contemporary Art, the Mexican Plastic Room, among others belonging to the National Institute of Fine Arts. and Literature.
Take a look at the heart of INBAL’s museums no matter where you are.
2. FRIDA KAHLO MUSEUM
In times where the figure of the great painter Frida Kahlo is going around the world, it is vitally important to know her history from reliable sources and discover her art from its origin. For this, “La casa azul”, which was his home in Coyoacán and where he painted most of his work, is a great option.
The virtual tour consists of 16 rooms that explore the painful life of this Mexican icon and his partner Diego Rivera.
