Museums, opera houses and tourist attractions across Europe and the world are making more and more content available online to make the self-isolation and social distancing more enjoyable and relaxing for everyone in times of confinement.

The multitude of offers across Europe is amazing. Why not try the 3D tour of Croatian Cultural Heritage, enjoy the work of thousands of European archives, libraries and museums having digitised vast collections of the Cultural Heritage at Europeana; many items are in 3D too.

The EU has supported research and innovation projects developing 3D applications, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) for many years. This is bearing fruit with many cultural outlets now offering virtual tours online. The list below offers examples of innovative experiences of culture.
