Royal Ontario Museum

The Royal Ontario Museum is an important building of Toronto’s heritage, dating from 1912, and continuing into our everyday life. It combines a clean yet jagged connection between the old building and the new Michael Lee-Chin Crystal addition designed by famous architect Daniel Liebeskine. The old portion of the Rom was renovated several times, and is made in large part of rusticated stone, yellow buffed bricks, and terra cotta. The new addition, the Crystal, is made of a steel understructure with an aluminum and glass façade, and is a beacon of Toronto’s ambition towards exciting architecture and its abilities to awe its inhabitants and visitors. The building holds over 6 million exhibits, and is one of the largest museums in North America.
