Enjoy a Virtual Tour of Mark Twain’s HomeJune 17th, 2013
Thanks to a new feature from Google, inquisitive history buffs have the opportunity to take a tour of Mark Twain’s home from the comfort of their desktop. Instead of traveling to the historic Hartford, Connecticut museum where Twain lived from 1874–91, users can enjoy a virtual walk-through free of charge.
As Richard Byrne notes, this new software is a great benefit to teachers who want to give students a more hands-on appreciation of history.
Google’s continuous expansion of Google Street View imagery means that our opportunities to take students on virtual tours continues to expand too. I love using imagery to prompt students to ask questions that they can then research the answers to.
