Our subway platforms may not be as beautiful as Moscow’s, but Museum station below the ROM is a pretty impressive sight. As soon as you step onto the subway platform, you`re greeted with history from around the world.  The inscription contained within the Museum letters on the track wall come from the tomb of an ancient Egyptian nobleman and date from 2300 BC.  You’ll find Egyptian ‘Osiris’ mummies as seen in the temples which were dedicated to deceased kings. Check out the Greek ‘Doric’ columns used in ancient temples and are still used in modern architecture today and which currently align the facade of Toronto Union station. And representing closer to home, you’ll see an example of the Wuikinuxv First Nation House Post. Can you figure out which animal it is?
