Read more about the museum's commitment to its virtual museum, "A place where the public can come and learn something new—about their community, about their history, about themselves. A place where truth can be found, with sources to back up the text you read, and objects to back up the stories you hear. For the best museums out there, a place where nostalgia and memory combine with history and objects to tell a story that speaks to the visitor, deep inside." https://jocohistory.wordpress.com/2020/03/31/introducing-the-virtual-museum/
