Getting Out While Staying In: Virtual Activities To Do While Sheltering In Place

Since the state of emergency began, many public places in Delaware have begun to offer virtual services. The following is a compiled list of local places you and your loved ones can visit while sheltering in place! 

“Relics” Virtual Tour of Biggs Museum of American Art

Walk through the Biggs’ Museum and enjoy Stephen Althouse’s feature Exhibition, “Relics,” on display through May 24.

After receiving a Fulbright Grant to participate in an artist-in-residency program in Belgium, sculptor and photographer Stephen Althouse began exhibiting his uniquely constructed photographs in museums and galleries internationally. Featuring enormous images captured between 2003 and 2017, this exhibition elevates and transforms antique tools and decorative arts into universal symbols. The monumental scale and spiritualizing compositions of these artworks reference artifacts of the past to illuminate a collective human experience that transcends time.

Winterthur Virtual Tour

Founded by Henry Francis du Pont, Winterthur (pronounced “winter-tour”) is an American Treasure. Regarded as one of America’s most beautiful historic homes and mansions, on par with Biltmore Estate, Monticello, and Hearst Castle, visitors marvel at du Pont’s elegantly-furnished 175-room former home. Winterthur’s 60-acre garden is considered one of this nation’s great gardens, and its research library serves scholars from around the world. We invite you to explore Winterthur’s beauty and history.

The Winterthur virtual tour allows visitors to see the eight floors open to the general public.
