Royal Ontario Museum

March 25th, 2012

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in Toronto, Canada has an incredible collection of artifacts and art from various world cultures including First Nations, Roman, Greek, Egyptian and Asian exhibits; and an excellent natural history collection featuring prehistoric animals and dinosaurs including a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a huge Barosaurus. The ROM ranks as a world-class museum. During my visit they also had an impressive Mayan Civilization special exhibition (I had forgotten how obsessed they were with blood-letting and sacrificial ceremonies!).
