The coronavirus outbreak has sent the city—and the world—into a state of limbo.
New Yorkers are resilient, but this new stay-at-home lifestyle is enough to make even the toughest urbanites go a little bonkers...especially when kids are in the picture.
Apartments might start to feel smaller and smaller now that the little ones are home 24/7, but there's good news for parents who are starting to break a sweat: We might not be able to have physical access to our favorite family attractions and kids' museums right now, but Google Arts & Culture lets curious kiddos gain access to their favorite destinations with a click of a mouse.
An afternoon or night at the museum (see what we did there) is possible, even amid these strange times. Google: City moms and dads thank you. Happy museum-hopping and stay safe!
Home to our favorite dinosaur activities for kids, AMNH offers a virtual glimpse at the pre-historic creatures, mammals, insects and plenty other beloved areas of its Upper West Side digs. Be sure to peruse the online exhibit, "Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies."
Although a trip to this interactive kids' museum—the first of its kind in the U.S.—is always a hit, a peek at home is pretty cool, too. Your mini geologists will love taking a gander at specimens in the online exhibit, "Fluorescent Minerals: Spices of the Mineral World."
This NYC favorite now offers CMOM from Home, a lineup of online programming that features a new video, game, sing-a-long or online activity every day!
Kids love perusing this medieval attraction, and they can get to the heart of the museum thanks to this Street View-like feature. It's pretty amazing what technology can do, huh?
Hop aboard the Concorde G-BOAD, check out the Submarine Growler and much more while visiting the (virtual) Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
