The museum is very busy and had a great layout and really encompasses their history recognising the colonial start and the original people of the land in two seperate areas i loved the native peoples exhibit

The rom is beautiful. There's something for everyone of all ages to enjoy. I suggest watching for different special exhibits as they change. Though I wish they had a price for just the exhibits instead of the whole museum plus an extra charge. I highly suggest visiting

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is the BEST museum in all of Canada. And probably one of the best in the entire world. There are a great many things to do. They have a European gallery; a Judaic gallery; a Far Eastern Gallery; one devoted to Greece; one devoted to African culture; a South Asian gallery; a Dinosaur exhibit; a... More

Lovely place for kids but exhibitions don't change too often therefore subscription may not be worth it.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
