Whenever I visit a new city I like to check out the local museums. I’m especially drawn to art museums, but will visit just about any type of museum a city offers. When I’m not traveling, these apps help provide a “virtual escape” to some of my favorite museums. If you’re planning to visit any of these museums in person, these apps should serve as a great resource. Enjoy 🙂
Brooklyn Museum Mobile
Musée National Marc Chagall de Nice (France) (English Version)
Musée du Louvre
Portland Art Museum
Explorer: The American Museum of Natural History New York City Guide
Great app of the exhibits featured in the American Museum of Natural History. This app also provides recommended tours by topic when you are at the museum.
Yours, Vincent The Letters of Vincent Van Gogh
This app uses Vincent van Gogh’s letters to explore his life and times. You can listen to readings of the letters and see many of Van Gogh’s sketches and paintings from the Van Gogh Museum collection, as well as video interviews with the museum’s letters experts and new picture galleries that showcase his art.
MoMA, one of my all-time favorite museums! This app has pretty much everything you need to explore New York’s Museum of Modern Art, including audio tours so that you don’t have to rent the speakers when you visit the museum. This app is a great resource for anyone who has an interest in art.
