Blog: Visiting International Museums from Home at Brickell Flatiron

10/26/2020

Miami is home to one of the world’s most bustling art scenes, from the annual Art Basel extravaganza in Miami Beach to the 50-plus blocks of outdoor art in the Wynwood Arts District — not to mention the exciting galleries and Art Deco architecture dotting the landscape. But at this particular time, residents of the Brickell Flatiron condos might prefer to experience art from the comfort and safety of their homes. With that in mind, here is a sampling of virtual exhibits now available from the world’s most famed museums.

 

The online tour at Mexico’s Museo Nacional de Antropología provides access to the permanent exhibition rooms, where guests can explore the history of the museum, and view works representing cultures and traditions from around the world. In the room highlighting the Americas, visitors can see pottery from pre-Hispanic traditions and religious artifacts from Haiti. The Philippines room explores the diverse influences that led to the silks and piña (cloth made from pineapple leaves) of traditional Philippine dress, and presents displays on music, games, and domestic life in the archipelago today and historically. The virtual visit offers information about exhibitions and objects as you “approach” them, making for an informative and immersive experience.

 
For a European tour, check out the online collection at Madrid’s Museo Nacional Del Prado, which includes over 8,000 works, featuring artists such as Francisco Goya, Raphael, Albrecht Dürer, and Peter Paul Rubens. The famed Musée d’Orsay in Paris offers virtual visitors a guided history of the museum, from its origins to modern renovations, and features works from their collection of modern, Impressionist, and Post-Impressionist masterpieces, including pieces by Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, and Paul Gauguin. Across the pond, the British Museum in London is offering multiple avenues for exploring its collections from home. The museum holds the title as the world’s largest indoor space visible on Google Street view, which allows a personalized viewing of the Rosetta Stone in the Egyptian Sculpture Gallery, as well as other extraordinary treasures in more than 60 galleries.
 

Korea’s national art museum, the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, offers a perfectly curated glimpse into the country’s art and culture. A virtual tour — available on the museum site, as well as via Google Arts & Culture — spans the institution’s survey of modern painting and photography, and its collection of Buddhist hanging scrolls and artifacts. The museum has also made available a series of exhibition videos with English subtitles on its YouTube channel, and will be offering its exhibition “Reframing the Horizon of Crafts in Korea 1950-1970” in virtual reality.

 

Wherever residents of the Brickell Flatiron condos in Miami choose to make their virtual museum visits, immersive and satisfying explorations of art, history, and culture await.
