Cultural Tours

The museums of the world suffer the effects of the pandemic in the reduction of face-to-face visits and, consequently, in the capture of resources through paid tickets (we clarify, in the Museo del Barro of Asunción, admission is free), having to reduce their budgets with measures as drastic as the loss of qualified personnel, the cancellation of exhibitions and / or high-cost editions, and even the sale of some of their works in a desperate gesture -and much criticized too- for guaranteeing their continuity as cultural institution. All this as a result of this health crisis that is shaking the planet.

However, Covid19 has encouraged other strategies that, although they already existed, have been energized because they represent a break in the physical barriers of confinement. We refer to the development and visualization of a virtuality without geographical limits. The vast majority of museums are advancing along this path with a firm step and they do so in a hopeful gesture. Some offer their program on their own website and with greater resources available, and others produce their material that they present on the Internet through a channel on YouTube.
