Galleries At Home

While the Museum is temporarily closed due to public health concerns over COVID-19, we remain open for exploration and would like to bring the Museum to you. Explore our galleries, hear from some of our Global Guides, and dig deeper into the objects on display.

Explore Our Galleries at Home

Enjoy a virtual stroll through our Museum as well as more focused looks at the Africa, Middle East and Mexico and Central America Galleries, where evidence of human ingenuity and resilience in the face of hardship is one of many stories on display.


Connect with Our Global Guides

What better way to learn about the culture of another place than to speak with someone who grew up there? Through our Global Guides program—featured by Hyperallergic, NPR, the Associated Press, and more—visitors experience the galleries through tours led by immigrants and refugees. While the Museum is closed, enjoy these mini-tours from Global Guides Yaroub and Hadi as they intertwine personal experience and stories to interpret objects from Iraq.
