Combine this tour with a morning in Chinatown, or go solo with the renowned East Asian collections of art and artifacts at the ROM, Canada’s leading encyclopedic museum. A guided tour of the magnificent Asian galleries will introduce you to three of the world’s best-preserved Chinese temple wall paintings; a Ming Tomb complex; Korean ceramics, decorative art and furniture; and the largest collection of Japanese art in Canada. You will also visit the H.H. Mu Far Eastern Library where longtime librarian, Jack Howard, will present the best of his rare book treasures. Finally, you will have time following the scheduled program to view the rest of the museum on your own. Admission will include a separate timed ticket to see the exhibition, "Maya: Secrets of their Ancient World."

This tour is designed to complement the Chinatown walk which is scheduled for the morning.
