Royal Ontario Museum
The original, west wing of the museum, a three-storey Byzantine building of brick and terracotta, opened in 1914 with its entrance on Bloor Street. When the collection outgrew the museum, another wing was designed by Alfred Chapman (architect of Knox College) and opened on Queen’s Park in 1933. In the mid-1960s, the ROM separated from the university in order to attract its own funding from the government and the private sector.
