Museums and capital city landmarks shine blue light for health care workers
The Canadian Museum of Nature has lit its luminous Queens' Lantern blue for the foreseeable future, as a small gesture to thank the efforts of health care workers.
Museum staff have also donated 6,000 pairs of gloves from their labs to support local hospital needs.
In Ottawa-Gatineau, the National Gallery, Museum of History, Science and Technology Museum, Aviation and Space Museum, the Agriculture and Food Museum, as well as the Shaw Centre are following suit.
While these museums and galleries remain closed, to limit the spread of COVID-19, many can still be visited online with virtual tours, student workbooks and curator Q&As.
