We invite you to indulge your heart and your mind and to view some of our 1 250 lantern slides on Canadian subjects from around the turn of the century. Discover, through this virtual display, the evocative collection of magic lantern slides that McGill University used to illustrate some of its lecture programs at the start of the 20th century.

You have a choice of three tours. Also, at any time you can create and manage your own guided tours. The equipment is yours to use as you see fit. Have a great visit!
