New Town Hall
Both the new and old Toronto City Halls are located in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. They are the headquarters of the City of Toronto and one of the city's main landmarks. The
new town hall, together with the former Nathan Phillips Square, was designed by the Finnish architect Viljo Revell and was commissioned in 1965 to replace the old town hall that was completed in 1899. The
Toronto City Hall consists of three parts. The two buildings are curved in a curved arc, enveloping the middle of the parliament building, like a jellyfish with a beaded opening. The design is novel and unique. The East Building is 99.5 meters (326 feet) high with 27 floors, while the West Building is 79.4 meters (260 feet) high with 20 floors. Viewed from the sky, the entire town hall is like an eye, so people call it "-".
Toronto's new town hall is adjacent to the old town hall, the old town hall retired as a court, and its quaint Richardson Roman-style stone architecture still attracts a lot of attention. Nowadays, the harmonious relationship between the old and new town halls represents the history of Toronto's growth and symbolizes Toronto's past and upcoming future. The Toronto City Hall is open to the public free of charge, and there are many local residents and tourists from all over the world visiting here every day. In the film Resident Evil 2, the building appeared in the movie as a scene of the Raccoon City Hall.

Royal Ontario Museum
The Royal Ontario Museum
is located within the University of Toronto campus in Canada and is the fifth largest museum in North America and the largest and most collectible museum in Canada. The main contents of the museum are archaeology, art, biology, etc. The exhibition includes natural sciences, animal ecology, art and anthropology, etc. It is a comprehensive museum integrating world culture and natural history. Although Canada's own historical heritage is weak, it does not affect the rich collection of the Ontario Museum. The Ontario Museum houses collections from China, Greece, Egypt, Rome and many other countries. It also has ancient cultural collections such as ancient dinosaur fossils, and its rich collections are world famous. The museum has more than 6 million pieces in the exhibition space on three floors. The first exhibition hall of the main building mainly displays Chinese cultural relics and is composed of four Chinese exhibition halls, namely ancient art, Buddhist art, architectural art and sculpture statues. Over the years, the museum has been collecting world-class Chinese collections, including jade, pottery, temple murals, bronzes and more. On the first floor, there is a Japanese Hall and a Korean Hall, each showing the two cultural relics. The
museum is open daily from 10am to 5:30pm, except for Christmas. Adult fares are 20, olds over 65 are 17, students and 15--19 year olds are 16.5, children aged 4-14 are 14, and 0-3 years old are free.
Although it is a pity, I have to say that some cultural relics in China often have to go abroad.

Old City Hall
The Old City Hall, the Roman Revival building, was the office building of the Toronto Municipal Council from 1899 to 1966. It was the work of the willful and naughty architect E.J. Lennox. It is said that because Lennox is too slow, when the city hall is completed, the Roman style is no longer popular, and the budget is more than three times, which has inspired the irreconcilable conflict between Lennox and municipal officials.

Roman classical style is famous for its complex and detailed decorative sculptures. Lennox is an extremely demanding architect and a skilled hand sculptor. He is not satisfied with the work of the workers, and he is completely reinstated. I think this is one of the reasons for the long time.

Roman classical style often engraves a weird face on the entrance gate of the gate to scare away the "dirty things". Lennox made a big joke when he started, and he hated him. The politicians were all carved into little ghosts, and they all made faces, and his own avatar, seriously and seriously carved into the middle, glared at the civil servants who commuted from this door every day.

From the old town hall to the new town hall, in just a few minutes, you can see the Torontoopia shop on the road, this is the best place to buy the "hand letter", which has various representations of Toronto Cute little things.

Now, Chinese immigrants are the backbone of Toronto. In just one city in Toronto, there are six Chinese cities, which have become a bright color in Toronto.
