Travel Tuesday: The Royal Ontario Museum

During one of my primary school field trips, I remembered our class went to The National Museum in Manila and the moment I saw The Spolarium, I knew it right then that I would be fascinated with museums forever. Then, I got married to a guy who also digs museum dates. Yup, so there’s really no escaping it. Hahaha! There’s always something about museums that people find intimidating. There’s a connotation that museums are only for the snooty sophisticates and the educated. We’d like to think otherwise because museums open their doors to people from all walks of life. Some museums are even free of charge!

A trip to the museum fills a certain void in your being the moment you step out of it. You get out of the museum more learned, well-informed about exquisite items we’ll never get to own in our lifetime and yes, a bit more cultured.

The first museum we got to visit here in Toronto is The Royal Ontario Museum, one of the largest museums in North America. It is the second biggest for Canadian Art Museum. It houses state-of-the-art galleries and features a wide array of exhibits from the east to west. My favourite exhibit has got to be the Viva Mexico Clothing and Culture which made me want to immediately escape to Cancun, Mexico. I know this is almost impossible right now so I don’t mind visiting the Andy Warhol: Revisited (A Pop Art Exhibition) for our next museum date. 😉 For more details about the museum’s current exhibits and ticket price, visit www.rom.on.ca/en
