The Royal Ontario Museum is a museum of art, world culture and natural history in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is one of the largest museums in North America and the largest in Canada. It attracts more than one million visitors every year, making the ROM the most-visited museum in Canada. The museum is north of Queen's Park, in the University of Toronto district, with its main entrance on Bloor Street West. Museum subway station is named after the ROM and, since a 2008 renovation, is decorated to resemble the institution's collection. Established on 16 April 1912 and opened on 19 March 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, when it became an independent Crown agency of the Government of Ontario. Today, the museum is Canada's largest field-research institution, with research and conservation activities around the world.
The Royal Ontario Museum is praised as the fifth museum across the North America. The Crystal Palace carries on the aesthetics of corner angle. It is so peculiar that you can't forget it at the first sight. The main stand mostly displays Chinese cultural relics, including ancient art, Buddhism art and architectural art, which has fully occupied one display room. In the display of nature and animal, the specimen of dinosaur is presented.

The Royal Ontario Museum
is located within the University of Toronto campus in Canada and is the fifth largest museum in North America and the largest and most collectible museum in Canada. The main contents of the museum are archaeology, art, biology, etc. The exhibition includes natural sciences, animal ecology, art and anthropology, etc. It is a comprehensive museum integrating world culture and natural history. Although Canada's own historical heritage is weak, it does not affect the rich collection of the Ontario Museum. The Ontario Museum houses collections from China, Greece, Egypt, Rome and many other countries. It also has ancient cultural collections such as ancient dinosaur fossils, and its rich collections are world famous. The museum has more than 6 million pieces in the exhibition space on three floors. The first exhibition hall of the main building mainly displays Chinese cultural relics and is composed of four Chinese exhibition halls, namely ancient art, Buddhist art, architectural art and sculpture statues. Over the years, the museum has been collecting world-class Chinese collections, including jade, pottery, temple murals, bronzes and more. On the first floor, there is a Japanese Hall and a Korean Hall, each showing the two cultural relics. The
museum is open daily from 10am to 5:30pm, except for Christmas. Adult fares are 20, olds over 65 are 17, students and 15--19 year olds are 16.5, children aged 4-14 are 14, and 0-3 years old are free.
Although it is a pity, I have to say that some cultural relics in China often have to go abroad.
