Library Services - Virtual Tours
This is a list of a few virtual tour sites and one portal site that lists virtual tours. We decided we could use it in a whole class setting with a computer and a projector. Many require Flash, QuickTime or other software capabilities, but nothing expensive. They could also be used individually by students in a computer lab if they have headphones available. Some have sound and others do not.
Virtual Tours
  • CampusTours.com – Lets you search by state or university/college name for virtual tours of their campuses. Some of them are just sets of photos, but others could be classified as virtual.
  • The Louvre Museum in Paris offers virtual tours of different departments by floor:
  • Virtual Field Trips through The Teachers Guide web site; List below.
 
General
Museums
Exhibits
Egypt Voyager
The White House
  • From this page there are links to photos of different rooms in the White House with information about each room.
  • PBS White House tour
  • This virtual tour shows outline drawings of each room and will zoom in on details. Would be good to pair with the one above that has real color photos of the rooms.
U.S. Capitol Virtual Tour
Virtual Tours of Britain
  • This one was really neat. Includes the Beatles’ Abbey Road, ChristChurch on which Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Great Room was modeled. The virtual 360 really works by dragging your mouse across the picture.
