What is The Clio?
Named after the ancient Greek muse of history, Clio puts history at your fingertips. With your permission, Clio picks up your present location and guides you to landmarks, museums, and historic sites. It also acts as a virtual time machine, allowing a user to see images and videos and hear and read about historic events that happened around them. We are adding new features including interactive walking/driving tours and push notifications coming soon.
Because Clio is free, it depends upon people like you who care about history and culture. If you would like to help, please send us an email at email@example.com We are working to provide new features like push notifications and interactive walking tours thanks to donations and other forms of support. The Clio Foundation is recognized as a public charity under IRS code 501c3 and all donations are tax deductible.
With several hundred new entries and improvements being added each month, Clio is not only a website and smartphone application, but also a collaborative research, interpretation, and map-building project. Museum professionals, scholars, and their students contribute most of Clio’s content. We also depend upon local history experts and museum volunteers who often know more about local history than anyone else. Each day, this partnership of local history experts and professional historians is building a comprehensive, dynamic, and interactive map of American history.
