From the long weekend trip Look Past the CN Tower in Toronto

Daniel Libeskind’s long-awaited crystal addition to the staid Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) made its debut in 2007, and still reigns as the city’s most controversial newcomer. It’s not hard to see why, given it cantilevers over Bloor Street like some kind of futuristic headband. Despite outward appearances, the skylit inner galleries are a huge step up from the dark and fusty quarters they once were, especially so the new halls devoted to the museum’s permanent dinosaur exhibit, a perennial family favorite.
