Fort Snelling Virtual Tour
(c) Programs. $3,000,000 in 2010 and $4,750,000 in 2011 are for programs and purposes related to the historical and cultural heritage of the state of Minnesota, conducted by the Minnesota Historical Society.
The Minnesota Historical Society is collaborating with the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities at the University of Virginia to build four computer models of Historic Fort Snelling that will illustrate the Fort at various points in its history.
These models will be incorporated into Historic Ft. Snelling's web site. The models will be linked to a rich and interrelated set of materials from all parts of the Society's collections, including photographs and manuscripts.
The result will be a web experience that will provide a unique educational experience to students as they explore the significance of a dynamic and changing Fort Snelling from 1820 to 1945.
