Free virtual tour of the Smithsonian – admission is just an internet connection

NMNH - Virtual Tour 1

It’s winter out there. For some of us, it’s REALLY winter out there. Snow and bitter cold winds are keeping us all inside. That doesn’t mean we can’t go anywhere at all though. If you’re looking for something to do without leaving your house, the Smithsonian has free virtual tours of the whole museum.

If you’re not familiar, the Smithsonian is one of the greatest museums in the world. This natural history museum has it all. Ancient beasts, current beasts, geology, the origins of man, SCIENCE! But not everyone lives in driving distance. Because they want everyone to be able to enjoy the many gifts on knowledge they have to offer, the whole thing is online, free for virtual tours.

The website works with both desktop and mobile devices. Bored at work? Check out a few exhibits. Got a curious kid? Check out a few exhibits. The tour is self directed, visit what you want at your own pace. They even have past exhibits archived so if you missed something cool, you can catch it for free. Enjoy a day at the museum no matter where you are by checking out the website.
