Royal Ontario Museum

Toronto, Canada
4.8 / 103
The museum is located in an unusual and original building of modern architecture. Outwardly, this structure resembles an orderly pile of geometric figures or a huge crystal with irregular edges. The walls of the museum shine with a cold shine of gray metal and glass. The Royal Museum houses more than 6 million exhibits: dinosaur bones, art objects, weapons, clothing, household items and much more.



So much to see at the Royal Ontario Museum! The architecture is also unique-combination of ancient and modern. Best way to experience it is to plan beforehand the exhibits you are going to see. If not, can be quite overwhelming. If going with childre.. Read more »
