So, you’ve been stuck at home for a few months now and have binge-watched and baked to your heart’s content. If you’re looking for something new to do, consider checking out some popular Canadian museums. These online museum tours are a great way to pass the time — without leaving the house.
Canadian Museum of History
Take a step back in time and learn about the Canada of the past with an online tour of the Canadian Museum of History. Check out the “Morning Star” painting from Alex Janvier on the museum’s ceiling, getting even closer than you can in real like. From Inuit prints from Cape Dorset in Nunavut to a clickable playhouse that lets you check out old Canadian children’s toys, the online options in this museum are endless.
Art Gallery of Ontario
The entirety of the Art Gallery of Ontario’s collection is searchable on their website, so if you have a favourite you can easily find it. There are also multiple exhibits available to explore, including The Boxwood Project, which highlights Gothic carvings.
Canadian War Museum
Explore the online exhibits of the Canadian War Museum, exploring the various wars that Canada has taken part in. We recommend a look at the War of 1812 exhibit, which highlights four perspectives of the war: Canadian, British, American, and Indigenous.
