THE FACTORY + ALABAMA CHANIN 20/52 | 2020

“Don’t go to a museum with a destination. Museums are wormholes to other worlds. They are ecstasy machines. Follow your eyes to wherever they lead you…and the world should begin to change for you.” ― Jerry Saltz 

As we all work to keep our family, friends, and neighbors safe by physical distancing and staying at home, museums across the world offer a welcome escape from this quarantine through virtual tours of their collections. These tours allow you to navigate through each museum, exploring all of the beautiful, educational, and thought-provoking pieces housed within their walls. This week, we invite you to take an in-depth, virtual look inside museums from around the world in honor of International Museum Day, celebrated today.
