Although the Alf Museum remains closed to the public, we have developed many virtual experiences to be used by college-level educators and students from home. This page summarizes currently available options.
The Alf Museum has a fully virtual, interactive museum available on our website (https://www.alfmuseum.org/about-us/exhibits/). Students can take self-guided tours of the Alf Museum and can be used with previously made assignments as an alternative to in-person visits. Please be advised that some portions of signage are not legible in the virtual museum. We encourage educators to test compatibility of the virtual museum with assignments and make adjustments as needed.
The Alf Museum also offers virtual group tours utilizing the virtual museum guided by Alf Museum educators. These are currently being offered at no-cost to educators and registration in open for the Fall. Visit us online to see more information or to register: https://www.alfmuseum.org/schools-and-educators/virtual-experiences/
