The Ohio Museums Association, an "advocate for connecting and empowering Ohio museums and museum professionals," has gathered a list of the virtual programming occurring at Ohio museums and institutions while they are closed because of COVID-19.

"Museums across the state know that Ohioans rely on these organizations to provide fun and educational experiences for the whole family," said Ohio Museums Association executive director, Johnna McEntee, in a release. "Especially now, with school closures and many people social distancing at home, Ohio museums are offering many opportunities for the public to engage with their favorite museums even if they are not able to go through the doors.” 

The current list features almost 30 museums, with more added daily, they say. Activities run the gamut between virtual tours and exhibit openings to activity downloads and live-streamed music and educational events. 

Here are the local listings (from their website):
