The Art project makes part of the international museum world and other cultural / religious institutions accessible to a Europe-wide target group: students aged 8 to 16 years. It is evident that no, or hardly any travel is now possible due to the COVID-19 virus, this has an effect on the mobility of everyone, including students and teachers. The ART VR (virtual reality) method opens up the museum world to students and teach them the ability to think critically and to form an opinion.
