While families are staying home to stop the spread of COVID-19, there is a wealth of free resources that have been provided by various organizations online to help educate, entertain, and support us through these truly unprecedented times.

We’ve gathered a selection of them here; if there are any that you would like to recommend to other families in our community, please email us at info@soolockschildrensmuseum.org.
