Amidst COVID-19 outbreak, Curly Tales encourages you to stay indoors. We take you around the world from the comfort of your home. #SpreadPositivity #ArmchairTravel

As the virus spread has caged us into the four walls of our houses, most of us are now being driven by one common process – binge-eat, work, sleep and repeat. Even when we are turning to the internet, all that we can find on our feeds are scoops of coronavirus, lockdown and quarantine. While we need to be updated about the current situation, we must swear by something light-hearted as well to release our brain fog. And these 10 international museums are taking us on virtual tours through their eye-catching interiors to keep us relaxed during these home stuck days.
