The Door County Maritime Museum building is closed though its virtual tours are now adding some teaching opportunities for students and their parents as they go through homeschooling. The museum is now posting video segments of the “Shipwrecks of Door County” exhibit on its website to provide some study activities that are also fun. Executive Director Kevin Osgood says the online videos are designed to help students and parents alike with these unique educational experiences.
Such online resources had been in the Door County Maritime Museum's plans before the COVID19 outbreak. The next offering for homeschooling will focus on the history of the Cana Island Lighthouse. Students will be able to submit questions to museum staff members who'll provide answers in video snippets produced on the island.
