Virtual Field Trips

Nothing can replace an actual visit to a museum, factory or place of historical interest. But when your destination is halfway across the country, a virtual tour may be the next best way to travel.

Board the LibrarySpot.com bus for the following interactive field trips:

U.S. Government

  • The U.S. Capitol
    Can't make the journey to Washington, D.C. to explore the nation's capitol? Take a cyber trip with the U.S. Capitol Virtual Tour. This multimedia tour provides panoramic views and historical information on rooms like the Old Supreme Court, the Old and New Senate Chambers and The President's Room. Double click the panoramic picture and move your mouse to navigate the room. You can also zoom in and out and click on "hotspots," which provide detailed photos and information on special historical objects found in each room.

  • The Supreme Court
    The Oyez Project provides a tour of the U.S. Supreme Court Building. On most pages, what looks like a still image is actually a 360-degree panorama that you can explore by dragging your mouse. You can also hear complete oral arguments for a number of important cases.

  • The White House
    Although not as interactive as the others, A White House History offers a glimpse into the history of the first family's home.




Museums

    Many popular museums offer informative sites that provide a glimpse of their permanent collections.

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art
    The museum's online collection includes more than 3,500 works.

  • Chicago's Field Museum
    Offers online exhibits, including "Sounds from the Vault," which allows visitors to play one of the museum's instruments through digital technology.

Factory Tour

Other Resources

  • Virtual Tours
    A collection of over 300 tours of museums, special exhibits and countries of the world.

  • Zooweb
    Visit zoos and aquariums around the world without leaving your computer.
