NAVAN Centre and Fort and Armagh County Musem are amongst a list of marvellous virtual tours curated by Tourism Northern Ireland to inspire creativity, wellness and virtual exploration.

The online offering will allow members of the public to embrace NI’s giant adventures from the comfort of their home.

Using the very latest technology, viewers can immerse themselves in Northern Ireland's beautiful landscapes, watch natural attractions come alive with colour and awash with sights and sounds that are a treat for the senses.

Along with our stunning natural environment, you can choose to immerse in our history and cultural heritage, serene scenery and adventurous activities. There is plenty to keep you inspired, entertained and mindful as we all stay at home right now.

Navan Centre & Fort is a place where myth and reality meet with a virtual tour that includes Ireland’s most famous and important archaeological sites, the legendary Emain Macha. Take a virtual step back 2,000 years and explore an Iron Age dwelling and uncover the daily life of the Celts in a highly interactive and unique experience by visiting http://virtualvisitr.com/panoramas/Navan-Centre

Meanwhile you can while away an hour or two immersing in a range of stunning virtual heritage exhibitions at Armagh County Museum, which is the oldest county museum in Ireland.

Current collections to include on your tour are Stray Sod by local artist Orlaith Cullinane, a beautifully curated exhibition featuring the Museum's eclectic collection of historical artefacts from throughout the centuries. Those keen to explore more recent history will delight in Armagh in Focus, featuring photographic images of the beauty of the so-called orchard county from the 1950s to the 1980s.
