History Buffs, Engage: U.S. Army Airborne and Special Operations Museum Makes Exhibits Available to All

  • Joey Upper

There’s no sugarcoating it: The spread of the coronavirus has added stress to hundreds of millions of lives around the world.

Many are compelled to stay at home in an attempt to halt the spread of a virus that has and will continue to have a serious impact on our day-to-day lives.

As more people are digging deep to find ways to break the monotony of being confined to a small radius of their homes, entertainment and educational entities have stepped up to help meet this rising demand for constructive – and occasionally educational – entertainment.

Enter, the U.S. Army Airborne and Special Operations Museum.

We have featured this museum’s content in the past, largely due to the Herculean amount of effort they have put into displaying their knowledge and inventory, but we’ve never shared what they have now made available to the public:

As folks can’t make it out to their North Carolina museum, they have made their virtual tour of the museum available for all to see – and it’s pretty impressive.

The virtual tour, which can be taken here (don’t worry, we’ll link it at the end, as well) features the extreme in-depth knowledge the museum has to offer, and while it may not be quite the same as the real thing, it gets us pretty darn close.
While all of the text in every display may not be perfect, a user may zoom in to exhibits to glean the majority of the its information.

This is one of the better distance museum resources we’ve seen to take advantage of at this time, and though we recommend it highly, we’ll also advise parents that as a military history museum, some discretion ought to be advised in touring with young children.
That being said, this museum is a blast. There are firearms, military vehicles, and historical tidbits everywhere. Click here to give it a look!
