This blog is by an Estonian discovering her childhood dream country Canada. Based in Toronto, but sometimes traveling. Looking for an Estonian connection in the far away country and giving away tips about what to see, what to do, what to experience. Hence the name of the blog: Toronto. Canada. Estonia.

Royal Ontario Museum


You will hear people talking about ROM or billboards ROM written all over, but not quite get what the ROM stands for. That what happened to me, even before I made it out the city. My host said, that probably you girls would like to go to ROM. 

So, ROM is the Royal Ontario Museum of world culture and natural history. It is one of the largest museums in North America, attracting over million visitors every year. Museum will celebrate its 100th birthday in three years. If you would think that they have 6 million items and forty galleries, then it doesn't take a mastermind to realize that this is a diverse collection of world culture and natural history.

I didn't visit the museum, as not much of a museum visitor, but I peeked inside and got an idea how large the building is. What was more attractive to me, is the entrance of the building they call The Crystal. Some tend not to like it, but some adore. I adore, as it offers great photography.

Please read more about ROM from Wikipedia.

ROM is located not far from Queen's Park, just north from it, on the intersection of Bloor Street West and University.
