COVID-19 and the Enhanced Community Quarantine forced us to temporarily postpone our plans. There are limited open establishments we can go to, our homes included. But for your safety and everyone else, it’s wise to follow the authorities to stay at home, especially if you have the privilege to do so.

But while you’re at home, you can still visit different places around the world. How? That’s the power of the internet. Here are the museums you can visit in the virtual world.

The National Museum of the Philippines
Manila, Philippines

This is your time to visit (or re-visit) the National Museum of the Philippines online. See the famous Spoliarium and other historical artifacts. You can visit the actual museum once the community quarantine order is lifted. You can visit it here.

You can still learn something new even if you’re in your homes for quite some time. Take this period to educate yourself and be productive. Use the technology you have for new knowledge.
