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.
