Museums across Dubai go virtual
Tourists can take a virtual tour through cultural sites online
The Dubai Culture and Arts Authority has rolled out an online service to allow residents and tourists to virtually tour museums across the emirate. Dubai.360.com provides panoramic videos and photos of several cultural sites throughout the city.
Museums under Dubai Culture have temporary closed to stem the spread of the coronavirus. This new online service is a method to preserve Dubai’s cultural tourism sector amid the current situation.
According to state news agency WAM, participating sites include Etihad Museum, Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, the Coin Museum, Al Naif Museum, the museum of the Saudi poet Al Oqaili and the historic Al Fahidi Fort.
