More than 6 million exhibits, 40 spacious galleries, a building which took a place in the list of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and the biggest museum of Canada – all this is the Royal Ontario Museum. This is the place where millions of tourists strive right from the plane ramp, even before settling in their hotels.

Located in the colorful quarter of Toronto, between the Royal park and the Philosopher’s Walk, at the corner of the central city streets, one of the biggest museums of North America was founded in 1857. At that time, it was simply called the Museum of Natural History and Fine Arts. The famous museum became royal only in 1912, and since then it has taken the first positions in ratings among the leading museums of the world.

Just take a look at the unique design of the building, which was constructed according to a project of a famous architect-deconstructionist Daniel Libeskind. You will immediately understand that the museum in front of you is not just a common city museum with a small collection of artifacts. A light air crystal made of glass and steel seems to soar into the sky, reflecting the milestones of history in the mirrors of its facets. It invites you to come in and start an unforgettable journey to the future through the past: from the time of dinosaurs to the flight to other worlds of the endless universe.

Five floors of permanent and temporary expositions are represented as parts of the “Spirits House” exhibition, where you can hear how miraculous sounds of nature are mixed with voices of people – men and women, little children, as well as birds and wild animals. From this unique atmospheric hall, visitors are transferred to the world of giant reptiles, where fossilized bones and whole skeletons of huge dinosaurs are displayed. Among the exhibits, there are such rare species as Parasaurolophus and Barosaurus.

On the third floor, you can familiarize yourself with the art of the African, American and East Asian peoples. A collection of contemporary art masters on the fourth floor can fascinate not only amateurs, but also connoisseurs of the art world.

Address: 100 Queens Park
