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.

A beautiful museum showcasing many different things. Visited to see the Viking’s exhibition and found it to be quite disappointing. Many things were just copies

This museum can compete with the top museums in the big cities in North America and the world. It is very large so either plan a long day to see it all or pick out which exhibits you want to see before you get there...More

I've been here a couple times when I was younger. I always loved the animal exhibits. I wonder if the bat cave is still there, it's great for kids. I think there was a Geology section that was also really fun. I would absolutely return.More
