Was underwhelmed. The dinosaur area was pretty cool and the mammal but overall just a very blah museum. The futuristic architecture really takes away from the building as well. There is a ton of dead space inside due to the crazy nooks and crannies.

Went with three tweets and there was more than enough things to do that kept them sufficiently distracted for the day. The spider exhibit was amazing, especially the colouring digitizer at the end.

Half of the joy was walking up the original entrance steps and into beautiful three story foyer. Most of this was removed when forced to walk into the abomination that is the Lee Chin "Crystal". Ah well, ROM is back in form, and as always...More

Bought additional tickets for exclusive exhibits like Spiders and Wildlife Photography. They're all so worthwhile and we enjoyed our time there! I also love how architecturally beautiful the building is!

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
