Day trip to Toronto

Last Sunday, we headed off to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Ontario.  Bill was performing at a wedding, and so he thought it would be fun to spend the day together at the ROM.

Neither of us had been to the ROM before, so it was another first experience to share together.

The place is absolutely gorgeous and so I had fun taking photos of so many unique pieces. Here are some of the galleries to explore: http://www.rom.on.ca/en/exhibitions-galleries/galleries

I really loved seeing all the Roman sculptures, which you can see from a couple of photos I took below.
No idea who the guy is in the photo, but it looked neat. He was a living statue! :)

I also loved the Bat Cave. It was actually a realistic portrayal of the St. Clair Cave in Jamaica. Although, I felt a bit claustrophobic as everyone piled in. Also, as you enter, it's pitch black and there is a dramatization of bats in flight on their nightly search for food.


More photos of the Royal Ontario Museum can be found under my Facebook albums:

Admission is not too bad, but you know me, I like to save wherever I can. The day before, I found a great promo code online that was still valid, so we bought our tickets online at a discounted price. The only downside is that there is an additional fee for printing online tickets, but a few bucks to save is better than paying full price.

Also, make sure that your address for shipping matches your address for your credit card, otherwise it gets flagged and you cannot proceed.

Visit the ROM website for more information and to see all the cool exhibits happening!


Finally, you can't have a proper trip to Toronto without taking the subway!
