Architecture Gone Wrong

The new building is an example of architecture gone wrong. If you are a fan of exposed drywall and parking garages, you will love the inside of the structure. Otherwise...

The outstanding dinosaur collection, housed in the new wing, has also suffered. The bones have been setup in glass stones. Perhaps the idea was to match with the surrounding building. Unfortunately, it distracts from the displays. The curators of the museum should accept the criticism of this building and move away from the glass theme. Paint the walls, get rid of the glass.

Fortunately, the older Chinese and Greek exhibits are outstanding. The nature exhibits are also pretty good. It is the ROMs saving grace. I also went to see the special exhibit of the Teracotta Warriors, which was amazing.

Fascinatingly Fun

I usually go to the ROM every year, and it was especially exciting the last time I went, as the ROM had just recently undergone renovations and looked completely different. It was amazing, seeing the newly built structure for the first time; the modern glass structure glinted in the sun and the sheer size and advanced visage of it took my breath away. Though not extremely good-looking, it is very awesome. The exhibitions were just as great, I loved the bat cave, the birds exhibition, the snake exhibition, the dinosaur exhibition (though I still don't find dinosaurs that interesting), the Egyptian exhibition, where the creepy wraith-like mummies, though pretty cool, REALLY gave me the creeps, the China exhibition with all the glassware and ancient cups and stuff, the room with the great gold domed arched ceiling, the Roman/Greece (?) exhibit with all the statues... etc. Overall ROM is a very fascinating and interesting place to visit, and contains much epic stuff.

This museum's renowned collection is centered on natural history and world culture—don't miss the archaeological exhibits and the Bat Cave—but lately it has played second fiddle to its notorious renovation. Known as the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, this 50,000-square-foot eruption of jutting angles, sharp points, and mathematical planes is the work of famed architect Daniel Libeskind. Thrusting... more

This is Canada's largest museum and the fifth largest on the continent, with 6 million objects in its collections. The massive and controversial renovation by starchitect Daniel Libeskind has had mixed reviews from visitors and locals: some love it, others decry the design. The new crystal wing, which houses six galleries, hangs out over Bloor Street, hiding the main entrance. (Finding your way... more

He claimed if we could not pass thru he wud return us the money. We did not take refund but are... more

Went to the ROM Friday night party. It is the best way to experience the museum. With music, dj's, food, and bars on every floor it was the time of my life. They had a silent disco and the geology exhibit with all the diamonds, stone and million dollar gold coin were marvels. If you are 19+ don't even bother going during the day just wait until Friday night when it's an adult event!

Being that his was one of my stops on my city pass I made sure I paid it a visit. As a history buff I was blown away by the amount of artifacts that the museum had curated. Nothing caught my interest more than the extinct species skeletons on display. They had a wide variety of pre-historic to Jurassic fossil exhibition that will keep you entertained for hours.
