On April 22, the Aga Khan Museum, located in Toronto, Canada opened its virtual doors for guests to enter “a window into worlds unknown” and experience #MuseumWithoutWalls. The museum, which opened in September 2014, is the first museum in North America dedicated to Islamic arts. It has a vast collection of both contemporary and historical art from Muslim communities around the world. Like many other museums around the globe, the Aga Khan Museum has gone online to help aid as an artistic distraction during this time. Each week the museum provides a schedule of events to take part in, including guided tours, video lectures, concerts, and Zoom-led art projects. The museum offers 3-D tours of some of its exhibitions, such as “Caravans of Gold: Fragments in Time”. [More]
