Royal BC Museum Learning Portal:

“This well-designed and engaging site focuses on BC culture and history. It allows students anywhere in the province to take a virtual field trip to the Museum. Each exhibit on the site features ways to listen, watch, and read, and also showcases the people behind the scenes who develop the collections and exhibits. Useful teacher guides and resources help link the exhibits to the curriculum.”(Gr. 5+) (Focused Education Review)
