It's one of Canada's largest museums featuring fascinating exhibits.
For culture, head a little north to Yorkville. On the west side of Avenue at Bloor, the Royal Ontario Museum had an ambitious redevelopment during the early 2000s — one of the world's largest museum restoration and expansion projects. The original heritage architecture was restored, a new landmark building was designed by Daniel Libeskind and, inside, elegant new exhibit designs were created by Haley Sharpe.
Libeskind's crystal design for six galleries hangs dramatically over Bloor Street, captivating passersby. Look up from the sidewalk and you'll see dinosaurs through the glass. The Reed Gallery of the Age of Mammals was the first permanent exhibit to open inside the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. Other Lee-Chin Crystal galleries that opened include the Sir Christopher Ondaatje South Asian Gallery; the Wirth Gallery of the Middle East; the Shreyas and Mina Ajmera Gallery of Africa, Americas and Asia-Pacific; and the Patricia Harris Gallery of Textiles and Costume. Six million artifacts from around the world can be found here.
