ONLINE EVENTS - Historic Huguenot Street Digital Programming

Joining other institutions across the country and abroad, Historic Huguenot Street has launched a new online programming initiative that includes engaging videos, hands-on activities, special deals from the museum shop available for delivery, and new ways to participate and explore its exhibitions, archives, and collection. These virtual experiences will be available on the museum’s website and shared through its social-media channels using the hashtag #MuseumsFromHome. The museum’s free Walking Tour App is available for download and allows visitors practicing social distancing throughout the 10-acre National Historic Landmark district to learn all about the history of Huguenot Street from their phones (https://www.huguenotstreet.org/app). HHS is encouraging visitors to use the app to participate in a new social-media campaign and share their best photos of the site with the hashtag #ViewFromHuguenot for a chance to win museum merchandise. Historic Huguenot Street’s collections are available 24/7 through New York Heritage Digital Collections (https://nyheritage.org/contributors/historic-huguenot-street), including manuscripts and photographs, and objects such as textiles, kitchenware, and more. Historic Huguenot Street is looking at how to engage the community online for the foreseeable future. Going forward, HHS’s exhibits will be available entirely online to make information accessible to a wide audience.
