When Washington State went on official lockdown, I was thrilled to hear that museums from around the world offer virtual tours. It's the ideal time for armchair travel, right?

I soon discovered, however, that these "tours" can be totally overwhelming. What could make exploring a virtual museum more appealing for kids? How about a scavenger hunt?

Search for the polar bear in the Smithsonian, find the Creation of Adam in the Vatican or inspect a favorite fossil from The Burke. Whatever adventure they choose, your kids are sure to discover a lot more along the way with these five ideas for virtual searches in museums. Find the answer key at the end of this article.
