Some are free to “visit” while others cost a fee
March marks Women’s History Month and what better time to celebrate than on the heels of Kamala Harris’ confirmation as the first female vice president of the United States.
Don’t feel comfortable visiting a museum in person? No problem. The Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration recently culled a list of virtual exhibits that teachers and families can visit from the comfort of their computers.
Some of the featured exhibits, such as the Virginia Museum of History and Culture’s “Activism in the Suffrage Movement,” are free to peruse. Others, like the “Dirt on Their Skirts” by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, cost a fee.
