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!).
