"Something Old, Something New" ROM - Royal Ontario Museum Tip by Tom_Fields
ROM - Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto: 41 reviews and 90 photos
At the time of my visit, Toronto was celebrating the opening of the new Michael Lee-Chin Crystal addition to the Royal Ontario Museum. Designed by Daniel Libeskind, it really stands out. Whether you like it or not, you must give credit for originality.
My companion remarked that it appeared that a spaceship had slammed into the building. They had live bands, speakers, and a vast throng of spectators. Quite a scene.
It was far too crowded to go inside. But it was worth visiting for the incredible sight of an old building with a new one stuck on it. Where else but Toronto would they do that?
