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.

We enjoyed the Dior fashion history exhibit. Love the totem poles and the dinosaurs. We recommend taking a free tour at the start for an overview.

Love the setup of this museum and how they present their exhibits. We were here on a Sunday and it was incredibly crowded, but awesome nonetheless.

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.
