- 2010 - now
During one of the coldest winter seasons this 2013-14 our family braved the elements and decided to collectively journey over to our most beloved attraction in Toronto: The Royal Ontario Museum. It has been a difficult at best winter and the desire for outdoor activities decreased and the anticipation for indoor adventures would be high on our "to do list" this March Break. Anyway, the ROM increased our appetite for adventure, mystery and inspiration via the exhibits and workshops. We loved the new exhibit "The Forbidden City" which was first on our list. We then trekked up the stairs where the totem pole is and would travel for many floors to only time travel to all of the awe inspiring exhibits that would span the globe. The last exhibit was the "Wildlife Photographer of the Year"... one word..."captivating". All in all, we loved the thrill of adventure with the workshops, the intrigue of mystery with the educated storytelling of past events and the insatiable inspiration of the hard work put in to the museum from all the exhibits to enlighten all ages, young and old. We all can not say enough of the beauty and education of the ROM. Also, as an added bonus, we were willing to purchase the complete ROM experience admission and gladly wanted to pay the price of regular admission, however, instead informed by the cashier of a March Break Special with the value of a "family membership" for two adults and up to four children for the year (which ended up as a the same cost of our total experience price). We decided this was too good to pass up and became members. Not bad for a value priced outing! Another reason to thank the ROM for its beneficial commitment to its patrons. Definitely, the toast of the town!
