Virtual Tours and Activities from Dallas Museums Make it Easy to Keep Learning

Ways to Explore Art, Science, and History At Home

BY // 04.08.20

Just because we can’t physically visit our favorite Dallas museums right now doesn’t mean we can’t continue to experience and learn from them. Several of the city’s best art, science, and history museums have expanded their digital and virtual content so we can still enjoy them while at home.

The Perot Museum of Nature and Science

The Perot Museum has started a weekly series online called “Amaze Your Brain at Home,”which includes video sessions that allow viewers to learn how to engineer an electrical circuit, sing about gravity, and design a hovercraft using household items.

Week two of the series explores weather and nature, inspiring kids and adults to hunt for bugs in the backyard and build your own barometer.

Dallas Museum of Art

Along with a new virtual tour each week of new exhibitions like “Flores Mexicanas: Women in Modern Mexican Art,” DMA at Home offers behind-the-scenes stories, guides, activities, and more for homebound art lovers. You can also explore their recent “Speechless: different by design” exhibition and all sorts of other content by signing up for the Museum Mondays newsletter.

Nasher Sculpture Center

Nasher from Home is another great educational and artistic resource. Users can explore several art activities and lessons, watch video highlights of past events, learn more about the latest Nasher Prize winner, and more.
