I'm posting over here this week.
MUSEUMS is the theme.
Toronto has many museums. AGO, ROM to name a few.
My BFF and I love to go wandering with our cameras. Last summer we were near the ROM, Royal Ontario Museum, we didn't go in, save that for a rainy day. We've attended many of the exhibits in the past.
It is a museum of world culture and natural history and attracts over one million visitors a year.
The building is an eclectic mix of old and new.

Established on April 16, 1912 and opened on March 19th, 1914, the museum has maintained close relations with the University of Toronto throughout its history, often sharing expertise and resources. The museum was under the direct control and management of the University of Toronto until 1968. It then became an independent institution. Today, the museum is Canada's largest field-research institution, with research and conservation activities that span the globe.
