3 Local Museums To Enjoy Virtually

At City Lights on Fig, we know that one of the greatest perks of living in our downtown LA apartments is that you are close to the heart of the city. There are so many places to explore in the area, from fine dining to cultural attractions. Several local museums offer virtual museum experiences so you can see the exhibits safely from the comfort of home, and plan for a future trip. It is a great option when you can't visit the museum in person right now.

J. Paul Getty Museum

The Getty offers several virtual museum experiences. You can enjoy Last-Minute Michelangelo, a series of short tours of the museum's Michelangelo exhibit. You can also view other online exhibits, read about some of the artwork, and explore the museum in greater detail through Google Arts & Culture. If you like playing Animal Crossing, The Getty also has a tool that allows you to add museum artwork to your game.

Natural History Museum

If you enjoy nature, the Natural History Museum's online activities might be more your style. You can enjoy pictures, videos, and audio clips about insects, birds, and reptiles. If you're interested in learning a little more about local history, be sure to watch their video about the origins of many local streets' names.

The Grammy Museum

The Grammy Museum offers an assortment of virtual opportunities. You can watch a Peggy Lee 100th Birthday Celebration, enjoy some photographs and audio clips from the Whitney Houston exhibit, and learn more about Frank Sinatra, all without leaving your downtown LA apartment. You can also enjoy interviews with current musicians, such as Gavin Rossdale from Bush, Brett Young, and Shinedown.

So, sit back, grab a glass of your favorite wine, and take a virtual tour this evening. If you are still looking for a great place to live, contact us to learn more about our apartments in downtown LA. We have an assortment of floor plans to fit your needs.
