It’s been years since I went to the ROM. I used to go every year in high school for Latin class (yes I took Latin for three years of high school). I loved everything to do with ancient civilizations, world history, archaeology and anthropology. I still love it!
The main reason for our trip to the ROM was to visit The Forbidden City exhibit. Unfortunately there were no cameras allowed in. I highly recommend going to see The Forbidden City exhibit. It was super informative and so intriguing to see how the emperor and his family lived behind those secretive walls. I didn’t know this but you can actually go into the real Forbidden City now as it is open to the public and has been turned into a museum. Hopefully one day I can go.
Judging by this face you probably think I am lying about enjoying the musuem. I have what they call RBF – Resting Bitch Face. I have lived with this my whole life. No there is nothing wrong. No I am not upset. This is just what my face looks like when it’s resting. I just learnt about this term and I love it! Shout out if you feeling me?
We stumbled across this tapestry that is made out of all bottle caps. The artist El Anatsui created this artwork which is called Straying Continents.
“It is an iconic addition to the ROM’s collections, one that powerfully conveys Africa in a poetic and contemporary way,” said ROM director Janet Carding.

After the Chinese and Korean exhibits and The Forbidden City we had to make the tough decision between visiting the dinosaurs or the ancient civilizations collections. We were running out of time and I gave the decision to Ken. He had never been to the ROM so it only made sense.Of course Ken chose dinosaurs.
We didn’t get to go through all of the dinosaur section as we had to go meet up with some friends. There’s so much more to see at the ROM and you can get lost in there for hours. One day we will have to return to see the rest.
