Virtual Tour


I am excited to show my students the exhibition using the 360 degree virtual tour online. It is extremely valuable that people use this virtual tour where you can click on pictures and items to learn more information in addition to simply looking. I will definitely use this in my classroom!

The Story of Virginia: An American Experience will be CLOSED starting January 6, 2014 for extensive renovations.

Each chapter of the Story of Virginia is available in a virtual tour.  The virtual tour allows the user to take a 360 degree view of the gallery space and select objects within the gallery that they wish to explore further.  To navigate to other sections of the virtual tour, select the "Scenes" tab located at the lower left-hand corner of the viewer. You can then select from twelve different gallery scenes.
