VIDEO: First multimedia Sikh museum in Canada

If you can handle simultaneous multi-language closed captioning, the video below shows some images and gives a little information on the Multimedia Sikh Museum in the Indian-dominated city of Mississauga on the outskirts of Toronto. It is the first of its kind in Canada and only the second in the world after India.

The museum was opened last October at Ontario Khalsa Darbar, North America's biggest Sikh shrine. The touch-screen museum is a 400-hour-long journey through 60,000 pages of text and tons of audio, video, animation, graphics and about 1,500 paintings.
