Virtual Access to Museums Where Every Visit Is an Adventure
Museums are a vital part of the American landscape, showcasing the greatest achievements of the human experience—past, present, and future. Visitors remember, discover, and learn in these museums that present the best of our country’s culture, accomplishments, and heritage. Museum Access explores these museums in a way that the everyday visitor cannot. It goes behind the scenes where ordinary folks don’t get a chance to go—talking to the directors, curators, and creative personnel to get an insider’s view of the museums.
Each Museum Access program includes travel, history, education, and most of all, fun! Students can explore the underwater world of dolphins and whales. They can travel to outer space with Astronaut Jim Lovell or take a peek into Leonardo da Vinci’s workshop in Florence, Italy. They can follow the journey of China’s 2,000-year-old Terra Cotta Warriors or step into a World War II German submarine.
