Virtual Museum Tours

If you are missing visits to Aberdeen Art Gallery during this period, several galleries and museums are offering virtual tours.

A particular favourite of ours was the British Museum’s interactive tour. This is a great option for kids who want to be hands on and get involved. Travel through time and view the exhibits in a completely new way!
