We’re all spending a lot more time at home these days, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! Thankfully, we live in a time where high-speed internet isn’t difficult to come by. Museums and other institutions are taking advantage of this by letting people all across the country explore their collections online! Here are three of our favorites to share with your kids.
Monterey Bay Aquarium
California’s famous aquarium may still be closed to the public, but they have live webcams during specific hours that you can watch online. See leopard sharks move gracefully among the kelp or check out the soothing view of jellyfish floating through the water. When live cams are not available, there are pre-recorded videos so you can log in any time of day.
Boston Children’s Museum
A children’s museum is always a fun adventure during summer and Boston has made theirs available to the public online. Tour the exhibits with your kids from home and you’ll never have to wait in line! You can even take the opportunity to expand their learning at home, sparked by what you see on the screen.
NASA Glenn Research Center
If being cooped up at home has got you and the kids antsy, get your head in the clouds and start thinking about outer space! During your virtual tour, don’t forget to check out the Space Telescope Operations Control Center, which is where the Hubble Telescope lives! NASA has made many materials available online to help further your discussions and answer the kid’s questions.
