Welcome to the National Museum of History’s virtual tour! Without any fanfare, you load immediately into your exploration!

If you miss getting out and about to museums as much as I do, you’re going to love this. 

When you land on the homepage, you’ll have a choice between permanent exhibits, current exhibits, past exhibits, narrated tours, and learning more about the museum. 

I started by clicking on Permanent Exhibits. It started at a glorious elephant exhibit. You’ll discover that you can follow the large blue arrows or use the navigation menu at the bottom of the screen. 

What you’ll discover are amazing panoramic views of the museum. As you travel through if you see a camera (seemingly out of place) click it and you’ll be shown detailed photos of the exhibit. And don’t forget to use your mouse to change your point of view, you can turn the screen 360 degrees. 

This is an awesome way to explore the museum from the comfort of your home. I love that they’ve provided such a great way for people to see when we can’t be there in person.

Go check it out for yourself today!
