These days, there’s no need to pile into your car to check out North Carolina’s most-visited museum. Now that the NC Museum of Natural Sciences has begun offering virtual tours, all you need is the internet and a computer. Best of all, you can go on these tours without ever leaving our Chapel Hill apartments at Southern Village. Here are three great virtual tours to get you started:
Terror of the South
The “Terror of the South” takes you on a virtual tour of the museum’s exciting dinosaur exhibit. Through this experience, you’ll be able to check out real fossils, while learning about the dinosaurs that used to live in North Carolina. This virtual tour allows viewers to get up close and personal with even the tallest of dinosaur skeletons. Needless to say, it’s one of the museum’s most popular attractions.
On the “Living Conservatory” virtual tour, you’ll learn about a wide variety of Central American plants and animals. The tour actually provides a simulation of the rainforest, so that you can experience the environment firsthand. The tour also includes video clips that allow you to view native animals at their most active. Highlights include videos of tarantulas and sloths.
The “Naturalist Center” virtual tour allows you to get a closer look at the museum’s collection of preserved North Carolinian wildlife. In particular, the tour focuses on a variety of local birds, fish, reptiles, and mammals. You’ll be occupied for hours learning all you can about the amazing ecosystem of our state.
While you explore the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, curl up with a glass of wine from one of these Chapel Hill wine shops now offering delivery.
