While we’re all home due to COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders, it’s as great a time as any to take a virtual field trip (or 10!). From our beloved Atlanta institutions to outer space, buckle your nonexistent seat belts and enjoy some exciting adventures around the world.

Georgia on my mind

Zoos, aquariums, parks, museums and more across North America

International (and intergalactic) exploration

  • The Nature Conservancy: Take a virtual trip to the rainforests of Borneo, the coral reefs of Palau, China’s great forests and so much more!
  • The Louvre: Visit the museum’s exhibition rooms and galleries in Paris, France.
  • Access Mars: You can go to Mars. Yes, really!
  • Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre: Step inside London’s famed Globe Theater, a recreation of the original theater where many of Shakespeare’s plays were performed.
