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.

It was an enjoyable day with excellent exhibits. Our family really enjoyed seeing all the history. A very impressive collection of items from all over the world. The dinosaurs, Egypt, Greece and Roman exhibits were our favourites. The Blue whale exhibit was not really worth...More

Gotta love the ROM. Just investigate what the main attractions are and you'll have a good time. Also, make sure to go with a little background knowledge of the displays at least if you're bringing children. It's too much to take in one day, so...More

Hello, The ROM doesn't have on site parking but we do have a Green P parking lot very close to us at Bloor and Bedford Rd. (9 Bedford Rd.) I believe it is a flat rate of $14 per day. Best, Tamara

Hi! The Dior exhibit can take between 10-30 mins. It really depends on how much time you want to spend looking at each piece. I would allot for half hour to be sure. It was really beautiful.
