The Royal Ontario Museum

The Royal Ontario Museum
The Royal Ontario Museum, also known by the acronym ROM, is located in Toronto. The architectural form of this Museum is unique, it looks like a giant crystal consisting of aluminum and glass. One of the largest repositories of world cultural heritage and history in North America and the largest Museum in Canada. The collection in this Museum includes all the rare exhibits of scientific and historical significance. Minerals, space meteorites, rare precious stones and rocks, dinosaurs, even cerussite itself, called the desert light and Tagish meteorite, as well as Egyptian sarcophagi, tombs, statues, armor of great warriors, sculptures and many other items daily delight the eyes of visitors.
The Museum existed back in 1857, when it was called Museum of natural history and fine arts. In 1912, the government of Canada decided to transform the Museum into a Royal-then it was part of the University of Toronto. But it was recognized as an independent institution much later, in 1968, at the same time it was endowed with all legal rights. Nevertheless, it still cooperates with the University, and to this day teachers contribute to the existence of the Museum.
The Royal Ontario Museum is proud to display rare specimens of fossils and skeletons of ancient reptiles. On the second floor of the building, guests from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods found shelter: the remains of barosaurus and parasaurolophus, along with a collection of more than 150 thousand of their fossilized contemporaries.
It is interesting to look at samples of minerals, among which there are precious stones and even meteorites. The favorite is the cerussite light of the desert. After viewing the Main exhibition, you can visit the Vernissage halls and buy your favorite picture. You can also enjoy the exotic cuisine of the local restaurant and admire the view of Toronto from the observation deck on the top floor.
The building itself is amazing. Admission costs thirty dollars, but sometimes there are discounts at some shows. I advise you to visit it.

Address: 100 Queen's Park, Toronto, ON.
