Callander Bay Heritage Museum & Alex Dufresne Gallery Program

Virtual Tour
Until December 31, 2020

We welcome you to check out our Museum and Art Gallery... from the comfort our your own home! Introducing our new virtual tour that allows you to explore each of the museums exhibits and learn more about the history of Callander and about the Dionne quintuplets!

Special thanks to Ian Bradshaw of for coming and filming and setting this up for us.

You will notice there are random blue dots all over the place. These are little text boxes that relate to different artefacts or panels where you can read about the subject more clearly. Some of them, like in the Dionne quintuplet room or the logging room, have had videos embedded in these little blue tags. The blurb in the art gallery shows a slideshow video of the current North Bay Art Association show. The artwork in the gallery is from Jack Lockhart's show from the summer when this was filmed.

There are a few ways to walk through it.

1. You can click on the floor ahead or around you and the camera will move you forward. If you're own your computer you can use your mouse to scroll/zoom in more on the walls or artefacts. You can also click and drag your mouse around to look all around.
2. At the bottom right are a few symbols. The first one, a 3D shape, puts the building in a dollhouse view where you can rotate around a 3D version of the building. If you click on any room it will take you directly to that room. The one next to it gives a 2D version of the museum and gallery and the third symbol allows you to change floors. Of course if you wander through the museum and make it to the steps, you can click on the steps to virtually walk upstairs as well.
