*NEW* Live Virtual Tour: The Story of Virginia

from HistoryConnects from the Virginia Museum of History & Culture

Program image

Virtual tours of the Virignia Museum of History & Culture’s award-winning exhibition, The Story of Virginia, are tailored to meet the requirements of grade-specific standards of learning (SOLs). The virtual tour format is a blend of in-gallery presentation and question and answer, which allows for comprehensive SOL reviews for the students. Choose a comprehensive tour of the exhibition, or treat a topic in more depth. Either option allows students to explore the triumphs and tragedies of the history of the commonwealth and the nation. 


While the virtual tours have been aligned to Virginia standards of learning, the tours also meet national standards, and are appropriate for students and learners of all ages and from all locales. Additionally, virtual tours of The Story of Virginia can be designed for any group with special emphasis on African American history, women's history, government, economics, or primary sources. Any special requests should be made at the time of booking the program.
