The ROM

 
Share |

The Royal Ontario Museum, newly renovated to include the Michael-Lee Chin Crystal, seems as much a part of campus as any other U of T building. It's situated on the corner of Queen's Park Crescent (turning into Avenue Road at Bloor Street) and Bloor Street. As mentioned, it can also be seen from U of T's scenic footpath, Philosopher's Walk. The Royal Ontario Museum is "among the world?s leading museums of natural history and of world cultures."

Although some feel that the modern and abstract diamond crystal structure doesn't match the medieval style of the ROM's original design, I like the fusion of old and new.
