Stuck at home? On demand and Virtual Events and Entertainment

Stuck at home? On demand and Virtual Events and Entertainment

Yes, we’re all stuck at home, or at least limited in our entertainment and activities. Don’t sit in front of the tv binge watching your normal tv shows – save that for your normal tv viewing time. Use some of your free time to check out new types of entertainment and virtual events and broaden your horizons while you stay at home!

We’ve gathered a list of free online and virtual events and activities so you can feel social while social distancing. 

Virtual Events and Activities for Anyone!

Virtual Museum Tours and Exhibits

Google Arts & Culture has joined together with over 500 museums and galleries around the world to offer virtual tours and online exhibits of some of the most famous museums around the world.

Home Safari Facebook Live each weekday at 3pm will highlight one of the amazing animals and include an activity you can do from home. Join them starting Monday, March 16 at 3pm for the first Home Safari- featuring Fiona!

Columbus Zoo Q’s Series

Watch 2 sessions of Columbus Zoo Q’s Series on their Facebook page. On Zoo Qs, they’ll offer answers with weird, wacky, and fun facts about the awesome animal kingdom. There are 10 episodes available, and each is just a few minutes long, such as “Why do giraffes have spots?” or “Wombat Poop Is What?”.

You can also watch a new video of Aurora’s 15 week old cub explore his behind-the-scenes yard and pool!
