Readers interested in coin collecting may enjoy the website of the Edward C. Rochette Money Museum, which is operated by the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and bills itself as "America's largest museum dedicated to numismatics." The museum is located in Colorado Springs, CO, but readers who cannot visit in person can take a 360-degree virtual reality tour, which integrates a number of virtual exhibits that allow viewers to explore the museum's displays and "view both sides of the pieces and see detail that is not visible in person." These interactive virtual exhibits currently include displays such as "The Continental Dollar of 1776" and "Trenches to Treaties: World War I in Remembrance," a large exhibit showcasing coins and other artifacts from combatant nations. Interested readers may also appreciate the museum's blog, Tales from the Vault, which features "interesting and informative stories about individual objects or groups of objects that do not often (or ever) get to see the light of day," such as War of 1812 treasury notes.
