Museum Subway Station


The subway station that serves the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) was redone a few years ago and now features columns shaped as First Nation house posts, Doric columns, Pharaohs, etc, all based on artifacts from the collection in the museum. Some subway purists aren't impressed by the changes to the traditional station but I quite like it!

I think it's fantastic!!!
In Sao Paulo many subway stations have works of art, but not so fancy as this station!
Great shot!!!

Not only does the subway station look spotless, it's also decorated with great art! I would have posed there!

Now that is something scary to see underground. Nice photo.

I'm with you. I like it. And I agree with Leif, it is impressive how clean this station is.

So much art in your city! I think here we have so much from the past that it's difficult to insert any more from the present.

How strange that some people might object to this art! Just goes to prove that it's impossible to make EVERYONE happy!
