FREE Virtual Museums & Zoos:  

Smithsonian Museum of Natural History: Washington, D.C. 

Dinosaurs! Snakes in jars! Giant diamonds! This is a good option for kids. Our suggestions: The Ocean Hall, The Hall of Mammals, and the Hall of Fossils. Or, mix it up with minerals. 

 

The Georgia Aquarium: Atlanta 

The Georgia Aquarium has live streams, too! And you can pick what animal you want to watch. We're partial to the African Penguins. 

  

The Cincinnati Zoo  

Every day while school is out, the Cincinnati Zoo (home of the famous Fiona the hippo), will be hosting a Home Safari on their Facebook Live Feed at 3 p.m. ET. They'll have up-close animal experiences, plus activities to do at home. 

 
The Shedd Aquarium: Chicago, Illinois 

The Shedd Aquarium has already captured hearts with the antics of its resident penguins, which have been filmed roaming the now-empty halls of the aquarium, looking at all of the other exhibits. But animal lovers will want to follow their Facebook page, too: They're sharing all kinds of behind-the-scenes videos and fun virtual experiences. 

 

The San Diego Zoo 

Want to have something fun going on in the background while you're working? Your favorite zoo probably has live cams so you can check in on all the animals. The San Diego Zoo is a great start.
