Welcome to Eggs, a learning collection based on Eggs – A Virtual Exhibit in the Virtual Musuem of Canada. This is the closest you may ever get to seeing wild bird eggs without disturbing birds at the nest. This learning collection showcases eggs of the world with a special emphasis on the eggs of Alberta. The Royal Alberta Museum hosts one of the most extensive egg collections in North America. You’ll also find information on egg biology and a touch of egg trivia. So put on your virtual helmet and we’ll visit some nests!
