Just kidding! (sorta)

We’re missing exploring our city too, but many of our local venues are offering unique virtual experiences in Tampa Bay that change it up from our typical Netflix binge. Whether you’re looking to explore a museum, enjoy a concert, or visit animals, we’ve got things for you to do in Tampa Bay!

The Dalí Museum

The Dalí Museum invites you to explore, engage and be amazed through their digital experiences. They are offering a 360 tour of the Museum, Dreams of Dalí, a virtual reality experience, and multiple online-only exhibits, curated by the Museum Librarian.

Morean Art Center

Take a tour of the galleries at the Morean Art Center without even leaving your couch! They are also offering fun art activities for adults and children.

Tampa Bay History Center

Take a trip through history with the Tampa Bay History Center’s virtual tours. Our favorite is the History By the Pint: Beer and Brewing in Tampa Bay!

Florida Documentaries

If you are missing exploring our beautiful state, you’ll enjoy these video explorations of Florida’s history and culture. We’re excited to watch the Florida Dream and learn all about Florida’s dramatic transformation since World War II.

The Straz Center

Missing curtain time? Give the Straz Center’s podcast, What You Missed at the Straz, a listen! On this week’s “at home” episode, hosts Zachary Hines and LeeAnn Day Douglas discuss watching 42nd Street and Gypsy on BroadwayHD. You can watch your favorite Broadway hits on Broadway HD and enjoy a 7 day free trial.

The Florida Orchestra

Gershwin, Grieg, Ravel, and more! The Florida Orchestra is keeping the music going with live recordings on Thursdays at 7pm. The broadcasts will be available on-demand for one month after the airdate.

Clearwater Marine Aquarium

Even though they are currently closed to the public, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium is still providing world-class care to Winter, Hope, and all the other animals. You can catch all the animals on their 24/7 webcams and daily on their Facebook Live videos. 

Zoo Tampa

Lions, tigers, and bear, oh my! Keep up with the animals at Zoo Tampa on Facebook Live. We are loving the behind the scenes and story time videos!

Busch Gardens

While the rollercoasters might not be running, the animals at Busch Gardens aren’t slowing down. Join Busch Gardens on Facebook Live for an exclusive, up close look.


MOSI has gone virtual! Weekdays at 1:30pm on Facebook Live, MOSI is hosting online field trips with a fifteen minute hands-on activity and then a Q&A time.
