VOMA is now open. What is VOMA? I'm glad you asked. I had to look it up. VOMA stands for Virtual Online Museum of Art. It is the world’s first fully interactive virtual museum. Work has been pulled from prestigious museums across the globe and it's all FREE.
I downloaded VOMA (what a weird thing to say) this weekend and went for a virtual visit. It's a big download and takes a while. You also have to create a (free) user account in order to access the museum.
I would describe the experience as slow and buggy. It's a super cool idea and when it works, it's really neat. But mostly, it did not work for me. I'm curious to know what you think.
If you don't need a virtual reality experience, this article has a list of 12 world class museums with robust online "visitation" programs. Check them out if you need a blast of art!
Thanks for stopping by!
