Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) – is a well known building in Canadian city of Toronto, Ontario. This museum of art, world culture and natural history is the biggest in Canada and one of the biggest in all North-America. It’s located in down-town Toronto (Bloor Street West) close to University of Toronto.
There you can discover a collection of 6,000,000+ items in 40 galleries from all around the world. Probably the most fascinating things to see there are big expositions of dinosaurs and meteorites.
Today it is not only a place of the past, but it’s a very modern building with “alien architecture”. Modern design was introduced in 2007 with a support from a Jamaican-Canadian business magnate Michael Lee-Chin. Now this building is called “The Crystal”, it’s designed by famous architect Daniel Libeskind.
