Stuck at home? Check out a virtual tour of Smithsonian Museum of Natural History

With everything on hold because of COVID-19, many Americans are advised to stay at home and practice self-quarantine. As a result of this, kids in Ohio and many other states are at home instead of school. This has led to tons of kids being hit with the worst thing imaginable, boredom. 

Thankfully, because of the internet, there are many cures for boredom. One cure for kids is to check out a virtual tour of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. The Smithsonian Museum is one of the most interesting museums for kids to view; it has exhibits that many kids would actually be interested in, such as dinosaur fossils and the Sant Ocean Hall just to name a few.

The virtual tour is very easy to use, as it allows you to view the entire museum as if you were walking around it in person. On top of the permanent museum, it also allows you to view specific current and past exhibits that are not permanent to the museum, which makes it appealing even if you have visited the museum before. It allows you to get close to all the exhibits and gives you a full range of view of everything in the museum. The virtual tour altogether is a smooth experience that allows you to envision the museum just as you would in person. 

The museum appeals to everyone, but it being kid friendly is a big plus. Many kids don’t find art or specific events in history very interesting. This museum is sure to grab their attention as it has exhibits that actually excite kids. It also appeals to the adult audience as it covers many different animals, early human artifacts, and even has an epidemic outbreak section that gives history about past epidemics; this is perfectly timed as we are in one right now. The museum is sure to have at least one thing that anyone taking a virtual tour would be interested in. If you’re stuck inside, this virtual tour is a nice refresher and is bound to give you a viewing experience that is much greater than your house.
