Take a Virtual Tour of Museums in Mexico to Celebrate Cinco De Mayo
"Image Credit: Google Time is a thing that doesn't really exist while in the middle of a global pandemic, as it turns out. Even though it feels like we're in this weird limbo somewhere between March and August, it's May. Specifically, it's Cinco De Mayo. Advertisement Since you can't venture out to partake in any Cinco De Mayo festivities, another option is to stay home (which you're likely already doing) and learn about Mexican history—and maybe also whip up a margarita for good measure. You can spend some time on History.com learning about the origin of Cinco De Mayo when the Mexican army was victorious over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. Then to add some depth, consider taking a virtual tour of art and history museums in Mexico through Google Arts and Culture.

Now a museum, it's dedicated to the life and work of one of the greatest artists of all time, Frida Kahlo.
