Do you enjoy baseball, music, or aviation history? If so, take a tour through the country's premier specialty museums. Here are three you can virtually explore from our apartments in Carrollton at Union at Carrollton Square.
NATIONAL BASEBALL HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM
Devoted to preserving America's favorite pastime, the National Baseball Hall of Fame is one of the world's most well-known sports shrines. During the peak season, it welcomes over 3,000 visitors a day. The museum's first piece was a Doubleday baseball found in a farmhouse in 1935. Today, the impressive collection features more than 40,000 three-dimensional artifacts. The virtual tour offers a look at four exhibits, including Presidential Pastime. Since the mid-nineteenth century, America's presidents have been involved in the sport, from watching at the side-lines to throwing out the first pitch.
ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME
Located in Cleveland on the shores of Lake Erie, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame celebrates the history of rock and roll and the people who made it possible. The city was the site of the first rock and roll concert and was also the home of Alan Freed. He was the first to coin the phrase "rock and roll." During the virtual tour, viewers can watch and read their way through 30 years of Induction Ceremonies. The tour also features performances and speeches from 1986 onwards.
THE MUSEUM OF FLIGHT
Nestled in Seattle, The Museum of Flight is the world's largest independent non-profit air and space museum. It offers a fascinating journey through time and space. Meanwhile, its extensive collection features both aircraft and spacecraft, along with artifacts that highlight the history of flight. The virtual tour also offers an up-close look at the museum's most iconic aircraft. Whatever you do, you don't want to miss exploring the Concorde. Twenty of these planes were built in their heyday. They were capable of speeds more than two times the speed of sound at altitudes up to 60,000 feet.
