Through its #MFAHatHome initiative, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is releasing its expansive collections into the public’s homes, while also hosting virtual events, film screenings, and family art activities to engage its audience.
Home to nearly 70,000 diverse works, the MFAH is one of America’s largest art institutions, including seven separate facilities where collection objects are displayed.
The interiors of two of its most famous buildings, Rienzi and Bayou Bend, have been recreated online using eMuseum, and display their spectacular array of American and European decorative arts, paintings, and furniture.
For an up-close-and-personal look at the virtual museum collections, visitors can perform deep zooms on all collection objects, revealing an incredible level of detail. It’s a welcome feature for anyone who has tried to manoeuvre around a crowded museum floor to get a better view.
