Just because we’re keeping a healthy distance doesn’t mean the doors are shut. In fact, there’s a lot going on, and you’re invited to take a virtual tour and step into parts of the Fairbanks Museum that are not usually visited.

This is a great time to ask some of our friends, staffers, and kiddos what they like about the Fairbanks Museum. These Moments of Zen videos are on our Facebook page — a new message each day. Each social visit lets you in on a secret about a treasure in our midst. Feel free to ask questions and make suggestions!

And just because we can’t bring you together to hear stories from space in our planetarium doesn’t mean we’ve stopped teling stories. Check out Saturday Story-time on Facebook and YouTube to join educator Karina Weiss and her buddies. These lively stories are perfect for your preschooler as part of your weekend adventures.

Homeschool blues? Our educators are naturalists with a passion for teaching, and they’ve prepared materials for you in our Virtual Classroom. Take a look and let us know what you’d like to see happening here.

And we’re ready to join you in your kitchen or wherever you are … virtually. We’ll guide you through interactive online workshops so you can make your own cheese, set up a backyard weather station, get to know local wildflowers, and more.
