Sitting at home and working all day long can be draining. Thankfully, Dubai now has a virtual museum tour you can enjoy from the comfort of your home. In fact, other countries across the world, are also doing their bit to help you beat the boring routine and cheer up. The Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle is live-streaming plants to help you have a little digital escape. Isn’t that a great way to unwind?

What’s In It?

In an Instagram post, the Volunteer Park Conservatory said that it is very important for people to connect to Nature, especially in a critical time like this. Given that no-one would be able to visit the conservatory for now, Volunteer Park has made arrangements for live streaming in order to provide people a sense of calm and well-being during the uncertain times. The scheduled for the streaming depends on the gardeners maintenance, but will happen at 2:00 pm from Monday- Sunday.

The Volunteer Park also boasts a Victorian glasshouse which it calls a ‘true jewel’ in the crown of Seattle Parks. The glasshouse is inspired by London’s Crystal Palace and was built in 1912. The whole glasshouse is surrounded by lush lawns, but the true gem is preserved inside. The greenhouse in the glass house showcases different tropical and subtropical plant life.

According to a 2019 study published in the Journal of Positive Psychology, spending time amidst Nature can increase emotions.

What Else?

And if that’s not enough entertainment, Dubai now now has a new way that takes you on an armchair trip to Dubai’s stunning museums. Dubai Media Office has announced the launch of six fully immersive 360-degree online museums, right from the comfort of your couch!
