Virtual VOM

Introducing Virtual VOM

Onsite Family Programs are back at the Voelker Orth Museum. For anyone who cannot join us at the Museum we offer virtual activities for kids and families to explore while staying close to home. Each of these are offered free and readily done with simple materials.

We have also retained a series of guided activities to inspire creativity and conversation for families. We hope that everyone will take some moments to explore nature, neighborhoods, and each other.

Let us know how you're engaging with these activities by commenting or sending us pictures at education@vomuseum.org or posting to our Facebook page

Finding the Family: A Look into the Lives and Times of the Voelker-Orth Family

B & BA virtual exhibition on view on www.vomuseum.org into the Fall.

Finding the Family explores the lives of the Voelker Orth family through the local and historical happenings they experienced. The online exhibition highlights moments in the lives of Conrad, Theresa, and Elisabetha as we follow three generations of the family through the early 20th century.

The exhibition is organized by Carine Norvez, a tour guide at the Museum. She developed the exhibition while she was a CUNY Culture Corps intern studying items in our archive last year. Ms. Norvez has located period news articles and materials from a variety of sources to create a context for the papers and images left to the Museum. An audio text version accompanies the print.
