Virtual Tour: The Story of Virginia

Virtual tours of the Virginia Historical Society's award-winning exhibition, The Story of Virginia, An American Experience, are tailored to meet the requirements of grade-specific standards of learning (SOLs). The virtual-tour format is a blend of presentation and question and answer that allows for comprehensive SOL review for the students.

Choose a comprehensive tour of the exhibition, or treat a topic in more depth. Either option allows students to explore the triumphs and tragedies of the history of the commonwealth and the nation.

Program options include:

  • The Story of Virginia: From Native American Virginia through the 20th Century
  • The Story of Virginia: From Native American Virginia to the Civil War
  • The Story of Virginia: From Native American Virginia through the Civil War
  • The Story of Virginia: From the Civil War through the 20th Century
  • The Story of Virginia: The Civil Rights Movement in Virginia

Though the virtual tours have been aligned to Virginia SOLs, the tours also meet national standards and are appropriate for students of all ages and from all locales. Additionally, virtual tours of The Story of Virginia can be designed for any group with special emphasis on:

  • African American history
  • Women's history
  • Government
  • Economics
  • Primary sources

Any special requests should be made at the time of booking the program.

Scheduling for this program is available through the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC) website.
