Here's what others are saying about our programs
"I have always wanted to bring my students to the VHS, and this was a great way for them to see and learn more about what we are learning about in VA history."

"The children enjoyed learning about the primary sources available at the Virginia Historical Society. The presenter was able to keep the children engaged throughout the entire presentation. I liked that the presenter had time for Q&A."

"It was great. I have done video conferencing for three years, and this is by far the best. Loved it!"

"It is like bringing the museum to the students. Even in a museum, it can be challenging to monitor the students while they are engaged by presenters. Sometimes students can't hear about or see exhibits clearly. This type of presentation lets students sit and see artifacts up close. The presenter is also right there sharing connection with our learners."
