In today's digital age, virtual visits offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional travel, especially when it comes to exploring international art collections. Traveling to a physical location, particularly overseas, can be a significant financial undertaking. Between airfare, accommodation, and other travel-related expenses, the costs can quickly add up. Moreover, gaining access to some of the world's most renowned art collections can come with a hefty price tag, sometimes amounting to hundreds before entering the building. Beyond the monetary considerations, there's also the unpredictability of the art world.
