Things To Do Online

If you don’t have Erratic Engineeress on your blog reader or in your subscriptions, please allow me to recommend her site. As with any link that goes off my site, I obviously can’t control what happens or what their content is, but I can say that every post of hers that I’ve read, and I haven’t read all of them, is very clean, with lots of good (and fun) information. Her post today is HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR LOCK DOWN and it provides a nice long laundry list of ideas of things to do. I have copied the attached portion, providing links to virtual tours, directly from her blog.

Travel & Culture

Museums: about 2500 of the world’s museums now offer virtual tours, either of the museum itself or their entire collections. You could explore the French Louvre or even the Vatican. If you’re more into science and engineering, then here are some tech museums with virtual tours and you can also take a virtual tour of NASA.

National parks: take a virtual tour of the U.S. national parks.

Street art: take a virtual tour of the world’s best street art neighbourhoods.

Music and theatre: many operas, music venues and theatres are currently streaming their performances for free, so check out if your local or world favourite is doing it and go for it. Here’s a site with a wide variety of recorded operas, the NYC Met opera or the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
For Slovenians: our puppet theatre is offering some video puppet shows.

Zoo: lots of zoos also have live webcams of their animals, like the San Diego zoo, or educational updates on how the animals are doing if that’s your thing.

Travel documentaries: you could watch a travel or nature (or any) documentary and see a new part of our planet. I suggest starting with all those wonderful classics narrated by David Attenborough.

The list of virtual tours goes on and even some big attractions like the Great Wall of China now have virtual tours. Here’s another general list similar to mine, but do a bit of Googling if you’re looking for something specific and I’m sure you’ll find it.

Her original post is full of great items like this.
