Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

Travel through time exploring the period rooms on display at the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution Memorial Continental Hall in Washington DC.

Each of the 31 scenes are sponsored by a different state organization of the NSDAR and depict 18th – 20th century: 

  • Parlors
  • Bedchambers and bedrooms
  • Kitchens
  • Dining rooms
  • Meeting rooms and halls
  • An attic playroom
  • A study
  • A library
  • And more

Explore each room with the 360° image either by letting the auto revolve rotate around the room or use your mouse to move around the room. Navigate to each room using the image strip under the room. When you are finished visiting each of the rooms, use the upper menu, hover over “Museum” then select “Online Exhibitions” to discover even more online museum exhibits such as: 

  • Eye on Elegance: Early Quilts of Maryland and Virginia
  • Creating the Ideal Home, 1800-1939: Comfort and Convenience in America
  • Fashioning the New Woman: 1890-1925
  • By, For, And Of the People: Folk Art and Americana in the DAR Museum
  • Telling Their Stories: Samplers and Silk Needlework
  • Artifacts of the Abolitionist Movement

The virtual tours on this website open the doors to conversation with your students about how the rooms of our homes have changed and/or remained the same through the centuries and provides a nice visual addition to your American history studies.
