“The Crys­tal” marks the spot for Canada’s largest mu­seum, the Royal On­tario Mu­seum, which has a col­lec­tion of more than 12 mil­lion ob­jects and spec­i­mens with gal­leries fo­cused on tex­tiles, cos­tumes, di­nosaurs, ge­ol­ogy, and even a bat cave. Ad­di­tional gal­leries cu­rate ar­ti­facts from Egypt, Korea, Ja­pan, the Mid­dle East, and China—in­clud­ing the largest as­sem­blage of Chi­nese ar­chi­tec­tural pieces out­side of the coun­try it­self. The Michael Lee-Chin Crys­tal, which looms over the in­ter­sec­tion of Bloor Street West and Queens Park, was de­signed by Daniel Libe­skind and is com­prised of five pris­matic struc­tures. 100 Queens Park,
