Wellness Days #1 and #2 have come and gone, but there are three more to go. One thing I learned from my first two days off was that I didn’t have the time to dedicate an entire day to relaxation. If you have a lighter schedule, check out our previous post on Micro Spring Break Ideas. However, if you’re like me and only have a few hours to unwind, keep reading.

One of the perks that have come out of this pandemic is a lot of businesses moving to virtual operations. Instead of needing to take a trip to visit some of the wonders of the world, you can now do it from the comfort of your bed (bonus: it’s a lot cheaper this way, too). 

Don’t get me wrong, experiencing a virtual roller coaster at Universal is nothing like feeling the wind in your hair or the stomach-drop while flying down a hill – but, it’s still amazing that you can get a snapshot of what a place may look like if you have a few minutes to spare. So here’s a list of some of the most interesting virtual experiences you can enjoy on Wellness Day #3.

The Best Virtual Tours If…

You want to stay local

Miami University Art Museum

Did you know there’s a Miami University Art Museum? This year, they made three of their five current exhibitions available to explore online, with others being added soon.

The Art Museum was built in 1978 on 3 acres of sculpture park grounds. They house 5 changing galleries at a time with a growing permanent collection of over 17,000 artworks. The Museum’s mission is to teach and engage in dialogue, maintain a strong collection, and celebrate global artistic/cultural diversity. 

Bonus! If you want to see these exhibits in-person, they’re located at 801 S. Patterson Ave and open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. in Oxford, Ohio, and open for visitors with a reservation.
