Museums, National Parks, and Other Free Virtual Experiences 

You can Stay Inside And still explore the outside world

Updated: March 26, 2020

With many people finding themselves inside more than usual right now there’s a bit of wanderlust going around. Luckily, the internet is filled with dozens of virtual destinations for people to access for free. Groupon Coupons found everything from online concerts, 360 city views, and renowned galleries around the world.

While these experiences are free some offer opportunities to make contributions to worldwide organizations or local benefits. And though your computer or TV will allow for stunning experiences, the best way to enjoy these virtual getaways is through a viewer. You don't have to spend hundreds on headsets though. You can find affordable options starting at less than $12!
