The Royal Ontario Museum

You can explore the museum inside and out from the comfort of your couch! Enjoy street views of the front of the ROM (and the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal), then take a virtual stroll through the exhibits using Google Arts & Culture. If that’s not getting you as close as you would like, you can browse the ROM’s collections online through their website.
