Announcing Heritage from Home: travel the world with World Monuments Fund


We’re delighted to announce the launch of Heritage from Home, a virtual tour series featuring some of World Monuments Fund’s (WMF) most iconic sites around the globe, guided by the world-class specialists that safeguard them for the future.

Every month, we will release a new video tour spotlighting one of our signature project sites, from Angkor Archaeological Park in Cambodia to the Qianlong Garden in Beijing's Forbidden City. The site visits will take you behind the scenes of our work and showcase the diversity of places we aim to preserve.
