    what's the difference

    A: something is being visited
    B: something is visited

    is it the same with and without "being"? if not, what's the difference?

    is being visited= while you talk about it/right now " The British Museum is being visited by Lewis Hamilton right now, wow"
    is visited= in general, "The British Museum is visited by many people every day"
