今日が100周年 ロイヤルオンタリオ・ミュージアム

ROM_100_11

カナダ国内で有数のコレクションを誇る博物館、ロイヤルオンタリオ・ミュージアム(以下ROM)。誕生は今からちょうど100年前のこと。来場者には、記念のカップケーキが振る舞われるなど、今日は博物館を挙げての盛大なお祝いが行われていました。

ダウンタウンのほぼ中心。ブローア・ストリートとユニバーシティー・ストリートの南西角に重厚な歴史的建物と不思議な三角形の形をした近代的なビルが組合わさった建物が、ROM。開館した1914年には、地質学、鉱物学、古生物学、動物学の4部門を専門にする研究施設と展示施設という形で始まりました。

初代の館長はCharles Trick Currelly (1876年1月11日〜1957年4月10日) 。学生時代はトロント大学で生物学や地球科学、古典語などを専攻。卒業後はイギリスに渡り、当初の目的に反して英国博物館でエジプト学の権威と偶然出会い、古代エジプト第18王朝初代王のイアフメス1世の発掘に参加した後トロント大学に戻るという異色の経歴を持ちます。イギリスでの経験を買われ、トロント初の博物館建設に関わり、初代館長に就任しました。

開館宣言は1914年3月19日午後3時。当時のカナダ総督Duke of Connaughtが行った宣言は「THE COMMEMORATIVE MANUSCRIPT」という10ページの豪華な贅を尽くしたマニュスクリプトとして記録されました。原本は現在1階左奥に特別に展示されています。その奥には「1914年」「1915-1945年」「1946-1997年」「1998-2014年」の4つに時代を区分し、それぞれの時代を特徴付ける展示がコンパクトなガラスケースに収められています。
ROMのコレクションがトロント大学が所蔵していたものから始まり、その後に多くの寄贈品が寄せられ、拡張しながら充実していった様子が記されている貴重な展示です。

ROM_100_09

メインの展示は、4階に分かれたフロアに常設展示と特別展示が行われています。チケット・カウンターにある小冊子に詳細なガイドマップがありますので、必ず入手しましょう。

どこを見るかということですが、100周年を記念する展示スケジュールが組まれていますので、下記をご覧下さい。

今回は1階の「Musium of Mineralogy」で行われているカナダの歴史展と、「Museum of Geology」を歩いてみました。

ROM_100_33

カナダがまだ国として始まるはるか前の18世紀、探検家たちがセントローレンス川をつたって探索した様子が、数々の図版や絵画で残されています。特にナイアガラの滝やトロント等、今とは全く違う風景に驚かれることと思います。また探検家がカナダに来る前に住んでいた先住民族の人たちのアート等貴重なものも展示されていますので、カナダという国が昔はどういう風になっていたのか、そんなことを思いながら展示室を歩いてみてはいかがでしょうか? フォトギャラリーに写真を掲載していますので、あわせてご覧下さい。

    of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking
    issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show
    the same outcome.

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
    However think of if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and clips,

    Terrific blog!

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I do
    think that you need to write more about this subject matter, it
    might not be a taboo subject but generally people don’t discuss
    such topics. To the next! Best wishes!!

  8. tinyurl.com

    I think what you wrote made a great deal
    of sense. But, what about this? suppose you added a little
    information? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good, but suppose you added a title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean 今日が100周年
    ロイヤルオンタリオ・ミュージアム – Tourism Toronto is a little plain. You ought to peek at
    Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
    post headlines to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a picture or
    two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could bring your website a
    little bit more interesting.
