'Museum beyond walls' becomes a reality

From Nine To Noon, 11:46 am on 15 April 2020

Arts correspondent Nina Tonga looks at how a sector goal to bring art to the people has unexpectedly been realised, thanks to Covid-19. She joins Kathryn to talk about how different galleries and museums have got involved - from #MuseumChallenge, where people have been recreating works at home, to 'virtual walks' through galleries and opera watched 'alone together'.
