Private view: our art critic’s favourite online galleries

By Adrian Searle: The world’s great art museums have closed their doors – but you can travel within their walls virtually to see treasures up close… You can home right in or back away, without bumping into anyone. If you want to get closer still, the Night Watch is being restored, and you can watch (there is even an accompanying children’s tour). The Rijkmuseum, along with more than a thousand other museums worldwide, is now partnering with Google Arts & Culture, where you can get inside everywhere from MoMA in New York to the Munch Museum in Oslo, from the British Museum to the Musée d’Orsay in Paris to the Today Art Museum in Beijing.
