The Royal Ontario Museum is probably one of Toronto’s best known and loved museums — and one of the most photographed buildings in the city thanks to its intricate, jutting design developed by Michael Lee-Chin in his $30 million renovation gift to the ROM (known as the Lee-Chin Crystal, or the distinctive architecture along Bloor Street West) in 2007. It’s also known as one of the world’s leading museums of natural history and world cultures and opened its doors in 1914. The ROM is the ideal spot to spend an afternoon, perusing collections and special exhibitions, and the downtown location next to several subway stations make it easy for locals and travellers.
