Royal Ontario Museum

Toronto, ON

Royal Ontario Museum profile image

The world is a vast and beautiful place with infinite stories and events all throughout history. The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is a place that attempts to bring all of this information into one building and share it with you.

The building that houses all of these discoveries is also a work of architectural wonder, making the ROM a true stand-out landmark in the city of Toronto. As you walk up to the entrance, you get a sense that you are taking a step out of the ordinary and into something…well…extraordinary. The inside of the building is as impressive as the outside and you immediately get a sense of the discoveries to come.

When we think of museums, we tend to think of dinosaur bones and cultural artifacts. The Royal Ontario Museum displays both of these in abundance, but it does so much more. Children can dress up as knights and princesses of Arthurian times or play paleontologist and excavate their own dino-discoveries. Children can also play with, crawl on, and touch all sorts of interesting things, learning while they do so.

For adults, we are given an opportunity to see where we came from and gain an understanding that in the grand scheme of things, we are such a small part of what has happened and what will happen here on earth. The displays are beautiful and educational, and the ROM also does a great job of adding new exhibits and keeping the old exhibits fresh.

There is so much to see and do at the Royal Ontario Museum that one could easily spend many hours exploring and still not see everything. It is no wonder that the ROM is often remembered as a favourite destination for anyone who as experienced it. If you have not been or haven’t been in a while, it is an outing you should definitely make.

Warplane Heritage Museum

Hamilton, ON

Standing out on the observation deck of the Warplane Heritage Museum, the crowd of 12 or so people were buzzed (extremely close flyby) by an old military plane. A half hour later, we got to take an up close look at it in the hangar, along with many other classic military planes.
