Enjoyable art experience!
Christina_H, May 2020
This a great way to virtually experience a museum remotely. I liked that you can pause the narration and move your carafe point around inside each room. It reasonably well aligns the view with the narrative so you don’t have to do much work. A couple of improvements: there seemed to be an accidental set of typos in the narration where the script didn’t match the written words or repeated what was in a different room. Only a couple of those so forgivable. And a couple of rooms the photos were poor quality so it was hard to see the paintings being described. But over all great structure, really good content and interesting info. Very easy to navigate through and go back. Most photos were really great quality and made viewing enjoyable. Loved staring at all the parts of the Sistine Chapel. I had no idea how intricate the entire thing was. And don’t forget to look up in most rooms, the ceilings were spectacular not just in the Sistine Chapel but most rooms had incredibly detailed ceiling paintings. Pretty great way to spend a rainy Saturday in quarantine!
