Clio is your guide to the history and culture around you. We have 39575 historical entries from all across the country and 1596 walking tours, virtual tours of museums, heritage trails, and other curated experiences authored by hundreds of organizations. 251 new entries have been added and 408 entries have been improved in the last 30 days.

Clio is an educational website and mobile application that guides the public to thousands of historical and cultural sites throughout the United States along with nature trails, art walking tours, and virtual tours of museums and sites. Built by scholars for public benefit, each entry includes a concise summary and useful information about a historical site, museum, monument, landmark, or other site of cultural or historical significance. In addition, “time capsule” entries allow users to learn about historical events that occurred around them. Each entry offers turn-by-turn directions as well as links to relevant books, articles, videos, primary sources, and credible websites.
