Chinese stuck at home are traveling from afar to visit museums around the world without going anywhere but online, Xu Lin reports.

Chinese confined to their homes amid the outbreak have been exploring museums around the globe as virtual tours have grown in popularity during the epidemic.

They can use their phones to enjoy a range of activities whenever they wish, such as viewing photos and videos of relics, touring virtual exhibitions online, watching experts' livestreams, buying special cultural products, taking quizzes and exchanging views with others on social platforms.

Sina Weibo recently concluded its one-month activity, A Virtual Trip to Museums. Over 100 museums from home and abroad participated, and 17 offered prizes for guessing games.

Online influencers have shared their knowledge of museums and made recommendations. Numerous netizens have joined the discussions.
