The Virtual Museum of Canada is an awesome site with tons of activities drawn from the best museums and art galleries all across this country. You can go on a tour, play interactive games, or design your own museum based on your interests. There are also lots of lesson plans and activities for teachers (and, of course, Guiders!).

This exhaustive list of Canadian Museums and Galleries is from a wonderful website called Museumlink. Check out their site for more links to Canadian and American museums.
