This is the first time I've bee to the ROM since it was renovated with the "Cristal" addition. I would have to say, that it's a bit disappointing to see it upclose.....but it's different when you see it from the distance. It actually looks like a crystal. There's something strange merging an old style building with a modern building.
The dinosaur exhibit was amazing. I didn't realize that the bones of a Wooly Mammoth was actually found in Ontario - Queenston Heights. Wow!
There were a bit of excitement during our visit at the ROM:
- The first incident was a lady who came in through the entrance with a streak of blood trickling down her face. Apparently, she ran into the door.
- The second one was a missing kid at the CIBC Discovery area / Bird exhibit. I really felt for her, the mom was in hysterics...literally running up and down the hallway looking for her kid "wearing a grey sweater". Everyone in the area started canvassing around to help out, .even Aidan wanted to help. About 10-15mins. later, the kid was found walking between the Bird exhibit and CIBC discovery area, carrying a furry snake stuffed animal and a blue puppet, not realizing that he was a subject of a search.
