The New Normal: Entertainment Edition

FOR THE KIDS:

Good Housekeeping gives you even more cultural institutions like The American Museum of Natural History, but they also offer virtual "rides" on Disney's new Frozen rollercoaster! And, c'mon, who can resist watching the live footage of pandas playing at the zoo?


If you’re looking to get out into the great outdoors, check out Google’s online Arts & Culture program called “The Hidden Worlds of the National Parks” in partnership with the National Parks Services.

The digital exhibit features stunning tours of five national parks, including Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico, Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska, and Dry Tortugas National Park in Florida.


FOR ADULTS:

Need to get your music fix? C-Net is showing you where you can still enjoy live concerts while social distancing at home. Beginning tonight, log in to watch (and listen to), DJ D-Nice, Miley Cyrus, Phish, Melissa Etheridge, Armin van Buuren, Questlove, and more. They're calling this the #couchtour


Looking for something a little more...sophisticated? Thrillist has a list of the world's virtual operas and symphonies. 


An excellent place to start is Google Arts & Culture, they teamed up with over 2500 museums and galleries around the world to provide virtual tours and online exhibits of some of the most famous museums around the world, including Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum, London’s National Gallery and the Guggenheim in New York City. 

Be sure to check out museums in your local area to see if they are also providing virtual tours.

For those of you who just want to sit back and scroll through Insta with your friends, we've got you covered too. Yesterday, Instagram rolled out its new Co-watching feature. that lets you browse posts together via video chat.
