Hyacinth Gloria Chen Crystal Court

On March 19, 1914, the Duke of Connaught officially opened the doors of the Royal Ontario Museum for the first time.  As a memento, he was presented with a beautifully illustrated manuscript, richly decorated with representations of objects on display at the ROM opening day.  The manuscript is a prologue to the 100 years of collecting this exhibition celebrates.
