We use video conferencing to bring Living History directly to your classroom.

We also offer lecture-style Webcasts with historians on specific topics.
Students can tour our exhibits from their classrooms through video conferencing. Each tour is customized to meet your needs with wide ranging topics.
Our Live Digital Programs have a simple setup. All you need is internet access, a computer with a webcam, and a monitor / projector / smartboard. We use Zoom Video Conferencing which is free and very easy to use. We will schedule a brief Webcast Test with you to ensure that everything is good to go for your Webcast or Virtual Tour.
