Virtual Tour of Eleanor Roosevelt House

Screen Shot 2020-04-12 at 6.54.32 PM

Looking for activities that you can do from home? Check out the Virtual Tour of the Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site.

Val-Kill is a special place that serves as a window into Eleanor Roosevelt’s private and public life. Its understated beauty, natural setting, and unpretentious amenities may appear surprising to first-time visitors because of its simplicity; a vision that seems incongruous with expectations for the home of one of the most influential women in American history.

The virtual tour is part of Google Arts & Culture, an online platform through which the public can access high-resolution images of artworks housed in the initiative’s partner museums.
