Although we aren’t going out much these days, Arlington still has a lot to offer. For example, several local Arlington museums have put together virtual tours for residents of our Arlington apartments. These online resources make it easy to continue learning while staying at home. Check out these three Arlington museums offering virtual tours and explore the city from the comfort of your home.
Arlington Historical Museum
The Arlington Historical Museum is currently closed to the public. But you can still learn all about the history of Arlington County through the museum’s online resources. With topical virtual exhibits like the history of epidemics in Arlington County, you can get fascinating perspectives on our current moment through history. The Arlington Historical museum also invites you to find history in your own home with their Arlington History at Home challenge.
Arlington Arts Center
Missing some culture in your life? You can still get your art fix at the Arlington Arts Center through their online offerings. They currently offer art projects and classes for kids and adults, as well as virtual exhibits. Their standout series, AAC Off the Wall, has curator Blair Murphy interviewing artists around the world via Zoom about their work. Check out their website for the full schedule of online workshops and more virtual content.
Built in 1740, the Ball-Sellers House is the oldest house in Arlington County. The Arlington Historical Society has lovingly restored the home to its original colonial condition. This local historic house museum is currently closed to the public. However, you can still take a virtual tour of the house. Their website features a documentary about the house with detailed visuals of the house’s interior and descriptions of its fascinating history.
These Arlington museums offering virtual tours allow you to bring the history and culture of the city into your living room. Excellent local museums are just some of the amazing culture and dining options you’ll enjoy as a resident of 2001 Clarendon Blvd. If you’re looking for a new home in Arlington, please contact us to learn more about our welcoming community.Back to all posts
