KHS Virtual Tours
Although the KHS campus is currently closed to onsite visitors in order to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, our staff has expanded our digital programs and services to meet our mission. Our new “Virtual Visitor” page on the KHS website provides parents, teachers, students, researchers and history enthusiasts with a one-stop location for virtual field trips, videos, media links, activities, catalogs, research tools and more.
Every Tuesday and Thursday at 1:00 p.m. we are offering virtual tours of our campus and exhibit spaces on KHS’s Facebook page. Viewers can ask questions in real-time in the comments section, which are answered live by staff who are leading the tours. A 4th-grade teacher from Northern Kentucky recently had her class tune in to one of our virtual tours of the Old State Capitol. “THEY LOVED IT!” she wrote us. “Thank you so much for doing this and providing a different and interactive activity for them to do while we are all doing our school work at home.
The shoutouts and answered questions got the students so excited, and I cannot wait to set it up again next Tuesday and Thursday. The parents really appreciate it as well. Thanks!” We hope that you will join us for our virtual tours, too! KHS will continue to meet the challenges faced by the coronavirus by shifting programs and services online and by expanding virtual access to our programs. Stay tuned to new initiatives by visiting our website and our social media platforms!
