Live-streaming platform Heygo has ventured into the cultural visitor attractions sector by partnering with a number of museums in the UK and US.

Launched during the COVID-19 pandemic, Heygo uses live-streaming to offer guided tours across the world, with a mission to "create unforgettable experiences" for anyone looking to discover something new – but who might be unable to do so in person.
