In combining a universal museum of cultures with that of natural history, the ROM offers an unusual breadth of experience to our audiences from around the world.

I think everyone will find in ROM something special to discover - ancient art or mummies or dinosaurs or even sandwiches in the cafe ;) But do not miss amazing collection of minerals and crystals, it's one of the best!

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

Yes, the dinosaur exhibit and most of the museum is part of the General Admission. Go for the Chihuly exhibit as mentioned by one above. So, so worth it!
