Museums are closed to in-person visitors, but you can still explore many of their collections from home. We spoke with Jennifer Herrera with the National Women's History Museum and Jessica BrodeFrank from the Adler Planetarium about some of their online offerings. 

The National Women's History Museum has a NWHM@Home initiative with live broadcast field trips and virtual workshops.  The Adler Planetarium in Chicago has several online exhibits to explore, including "13 Stories With James Lovell," a crew member on the Apollo 13 mission to the moon. 

Guests: Jessica BrodeFrank, Digital Collections Access Manager at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago. Jennifer Herrera, Vice President of External Affairs at the National Women's History Museum.
