After our breakfast at Over Easy, we headed across the street to The Royal Ontario Museum. The architecture was really cool, a very high tech looking building was built around the original building from the early 1900’s. The ROM has a little bit of everything: dinosaurs, ancient cultural objects, furniture, and fashion.
My favorite galleries were the dinosaurs, the birds, and European style. The dinosaur gallery is what you expect, but I loved it all the same. Dinosaurs are cool. The bird gallery includes over one hundred species of birds all shown in flight, which was really neat to see. The European style gallery was a surprise for me. I thought it would be boring, but it was really interesting! There were several rooms set-up as they would have looked for many different time periods. When you stood in front of the room, music from that time period played. The Egyptian and Greek artifacts were also favorites. I really liked how they showed the process of creating the traditional red and black pottery in Ancient Greece.
We spent about 4 hours looking through the galleries and probably only saw a little more than half the museum. Highly recommend if you’re in Toronto for a visit.
