School trips, like snowy days, have become victims of the COVID-19 pandemic. But several museums are helping bring the immersive education experience to computers and classrooms across the country.

The Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration recently compiled a list of virtual exhibits for teachers and families to visit in honor of Black History Month and Presidents’ Day. The best part? You don’t even have to get on a bus.

Some of the exhibits on display, such as the “African American Artists” at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, are free to browse. Others, like the Ohio History Connection’s Underground Railroad Immersive Experience, are chargeable.
