Oh Canada

February 23, 2010

During a break in the Olympic action take some time to visit Virtual Museum Canada and tour the country’s many museums. Go to http://www.museevirtuel-virtualmuseum.ca where you will find over 700 exhibits along with almost 800,000 images from the holdings of  hundreds of museums!

There are almost 1,000 images of samplers and other embroideries; as well as sewing artifacts including tools, catalogs and other ephemera. Go to Image Gallery and type in your search term. Click on the thumbnail photo to see a larger image along with information on the piece. You can even save images and create your own museum by clicking the My VMC tab.

This easy to navigate website also includes links to individual museums as well as trip planning information. All in all, visiting Virtual Museum Canada is a medal worthy experience!
