Kids from 1997 Discover Smithsonian Institution Via the World Wide Web
The Kids’ Guide to the Internet will remind you of a not so distant past when the Internet was brand new and no one really knew what to do with it.
At the 6:00 mark, the Jamison family, the most 90s family EVER, explores the Smithsonian archives using a dial-up connection and the Netscape browser.
While the URL for the institution has changed (si.com is now owned by Sports Illustrated), you can still visit the Smithsonian without ever leaving home at si.edu.
Ed note: Hey Peter, if you’re still interested in the Wright Flyer, here is the National Air and Space Museum’s updated page.
