#MuseumFromHome highlights Alberta’s rich history (video)

For the first time, social media will be used to bring the province’s historic sites and museums into Albertans’ homes.

#MuseumFromHome began to trend after museums around the world closed to help slow the spread of COVID-19. From the Louvre to the Museum of Modern Art, curators around the world have been entertaining and educating millions of at-home viewers by uploading virtual tours, interesting and entertaining facts, and never-before-seen content of their collections.

Alberta’s provincial historic sites and museums will be joining the #MuseumFromHome movement with new digital content uploaded every week – from educational content, to crafts for kids, to exclusive tours by museum staff. The campaign kicks off with an interview between Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women Leela Sharon Aheer and the Royal Alberta Museum about their immense bug collection.

“Our historic sites and museums may be temporarily closed for public safety, but our dedicated staff have created new ways to connect with Albertans and museum lovers around the world. We are going to show off what makes Alberta amazing and why everyone should visit Alberta, our sites and museums once they open again.” Leela Sharon Aheer, Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women

Turtle livestreams, prohibition and pysanky ahead! Viewers can check out the social media accounts of their favourite historic sites and museums each week for new content. Here’s a sample of what is available now:
