NC Museum of History offers resources you can access at home

Virtual History

With millions of people around the world staying at home to stay well, several iconic museums, from the Louvre in Paris to the Guggenheim in New York, are offering virtual tours of their exhibits (see our 8 favorite virtual museums).

The North Carolina Museum of History is right up there with them, offering its own share of virtual experiences.

The museum’s website offers an array of resources related to our state’s history and culture. For students, videos on topics include NC history and toys from the 1950s and ‘60s. For younger kids, videos are available of age-appropriate history books being read aloud.

The at-home learning packet (PDF) for the NC Museum of History’s “Toy Boom!” exhibit offers several recipes for DIY playdough, including the classic below. You can find more at-home learning packets from the museum on their website.
