Imagine bringing the Cincinnati Art Museum into your classroom. Virtual Field Trips allow classes to interact with professional staff at the Art Museum via videoconference technology, examining works of art in the museum’s permanent collection and thereby enriching students’ study of social studies, language arts, science, math, and the visual arts. Virtual Field Trips are designed for grades K-12, and align with federal academic standards. All Virtual Field Trips can be modified for adult groups as well.
