The Great Wall of China

This Virtual Tour of the Great Wall of China is beautiful and makes history come to life.

Senate of Canada, Parliament Hill– Ottawa, ON

Parliament Hill’s Centre Block is now closed to the public for the next decade while it undergoes a long-needed rehabilitation. Online travelers, however, can still experience the glories of the Senate of Canada’s rooms in this state-of-the-art virtual tour, The Senate Virtual Tour: Your Digital Admission to the Red Chamber. Created by Carleton Immersive Media Studio, a research unit within Carleton University’s Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism, this is a fascinating example of digitally–assisted storytelling. You will enjoy a peek into rarely accessible rooms, with the opportunity to learn more about objects, paintings and maps.  It’s a true choose–your–own–adventure!

The Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre – Toronto, ON

Grandelegantmagical – these are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind when describing the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre in downtown Toronto. Built in 1913 and originally designed for vaudeville performances, the theatres were meticulously restored to their original grandeur in the 1980s by the Ontario Heritage Trust. Together, they are the last operating double-decker theatre in the world!  This National Historic Site is a must see on any visit to the city. For now, while the world is social distancing, you can experience a 3D tour complemented by a series of stunning photos. Here is a hint: While enjoying your virtual visit, make sure to click through to the Winter Garden Theatre, which was originally designed to look like a secret garden. The whimsical ceiling with its branches and twinkling lights is a must see! 

Fort Conger – Quttinirpaaq National Park, NU

Visiting the High Artic may be accessible only to the lucky few. Through the virtual exhibit, Science and Survival at Fort Conger, we are all able to explore the history of this abandoned artic outpost that was built in 1881 and played a key role in international exploration during the late 19th and 20th centuries. 

In these online exhibits and games, experience how Inuit Traditional Knowledge and Western Science met, and how explorers and Inughuit both endured great hardship and suffering. This online historic place not only describes the challenges that faced Victorian-era polar explorers, but also how the current day challenges of climate change and toxins from an earlier century are impacting federally owned structures, some of which are ‘Classified’ Federal Heritage Buildings. Hours of education and entertainment await, enjoy your tour!

Sinclair Inn Museum – Annapolis Royal, NS

Beautiful and inspiring murals were discovered at the Sinclair Inn Museum in Annapolis Royal – one of the earliest surviving Acadian buildings and a National Historic Site – when water damage removed the wallpaper from an upstairs room. 

Now beautifully restored, explore this very special room through the virtual tour Sinclair Inn Museum – Painted Room (best viewed with Chrome) and be inspired by art from the 1840s. Flowing trees, horseback riders, boats, waterfalls, and majestic mountains grace the walls of the Painted Room. Take a moment to be inspired by this panoramic wonder.
