This is the ceiling in the old entrance of the ROM. Pretty nice, huh! But I wouldn't wanna clean it!
What a wonderful place! You could spend days in there looking at all the exhibits.
I was thrilled to be able to view The Dead Sea Scrolls. Due to the fragility of the fragments, the lighting was very dim and we weren't allowed to take pictures; but here's something from the Net.***
As a Christian, I found it extremely moving to view these. The documents are both biblical and historical and date from 150 BC to 70 CE. One of the fragments I viewed was from the book of Isaiah; and a Jewish couple next to me were reading it as it was written in the original Hebrew. Wow! There is something that happens when we hear God's word in one of the original languages -- the Spirit of God is made manifest. It was awe inspiring!
We moved from there to the enormous dinosaur exhibit; then on to the insects, birds and the bat cave (which was really cool).
