A New Toronto Landmark Opened Today

A new Toronto landmark (目立つ建物) opened today, The Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. The Michael Lee-Chin Crystal is an expansion (増設) of the Royal Ontario Museum. The Royal Ontario Museum is usually called the ROM by people from Toronto.

One of the exhibitions (博覧会) in the The Michael Lee-Chin Crystal will be curated (展覧会の主事を務める) by Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto (杉本博司).

The ROM has another connection to Japan, The Prince Takamado Gallery of Japan. Prince Takamodo (高円宮憲仁親王) studied at Queen's University in Canada.

I'm looking forward to visiting the ROM the next time I'm back in my hometown.

  2. Hi Gina,
    Thanks for leaving a comment.
    I want to visit the ROM too. I haven't been there for a long time. I used to go a lot when I was in primary school.
