Overview
More
Opened in 1914, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) showcases art, culture, and nature from around the globe and across the ages. One of North America's most renowned cultural institutions, Canada's largest museum is home to a world-class collection of more than six million objects and specimens, featured in 40 gallery and exhibition spaces. As the country’s preeminent field research institute and an international leader in new and original findings in biodiversity, palaeontology, earth sciences, the visual arts, material culture and archaeology, the ROM plays a vital role in advancing our global understanding of the artistic, cultural and natural world. The Renaissance ROM expansion project (2007) merged the iconic architectural heritage of the original building with the Studio Daniel Libeskind-designed Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. A distinctive new symbol of Toronto for the 21st century, the Crystal marked the beginning of a new era for the ROM as the country's premier cultural and social destination.

This museum was very good! We loved that the dinosaur exhibit showed what parts of the models were actually real and what part were fake. There were lots of explanations on the cases and a wide range of exhibits as well.

We had 2 adults in our group and 4 kids aged 10-16. We spent over 5 hours and didn't see half of the museum. If you are able to visit more than once it is worth getting the pass. It includes access to special exhibits,...More

When I think of encyclopedic history museums, I envision fusty, musty dioramas with ratty looking stuffed animals, fake vegetation, and boring explanatory plaques. ROM is not that. From the spectacular shiny, spiky entrance to the beautifully curated and organized exhibits, ROM is a superb experience....More

A natural history type museum, with exhibits on the origins of earth, gems, minerals, and dinosaurs on one level. Other levels are more art museum-esqe, with exhibits on design, and different cultures around the world. Small area on Canadian History which was really interesting, and...More

It’s a little bit cold inside because of the air conditional. They got pretty much nice stuff to see and it takes about 2-3 hours to see everything there.Free wifi is available.

Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and
