The Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site can be explored in person or online. Our virtual tours and exhibits provide information about Maggie Lena Walker's professional and private life as well as artifacts in our collection and views of the Walker home. If you cannot make it to Richmond for a visit, we hope you will enjoy taking a virtual tour from anywhere in the world! The online resources on this page are also great places to learn more after your in-person tour, to be used in classrooms, and for research projects.
Virtual Tours and Exhibits
Google Cultural Institute Virtual Tours and Exhibits
In 2015, the Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site partnered with the Google Cultural Institute to create a virtual museum tour and several online exhibits. Our site was one of eight national historic sites selected to participate in this program, making the interior of the Walker house more accessible to virtual visitors.
Explore the Walker home using Google's street view technology on the virtual tour. Additional exhibits highlight the Independent Order of St. Luke headquarters, St. Luke Hall, and how Mrs. Walker served as a role model for African Americans and women.
