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 came specifically to see the whale exhibit and I'm super glad we did! It is a huge museum with lots to see but we focused on the whales and the Egyptian stuff. I would definitely come back and explore again.

I accept that as an American I might be spoiled by our museums, especially the various Smithsonian institutions and museums in Washington, D.C., but I found the Royal Ontario Museum to be a great disappointment. I felt it perhaps had too many exhibits, and because...More

The Museum offers displays that would be of interest to all different walks of life. The dinosaur area alone was worth the trip

It is a wonderful museum. My 13 year old loved all of it especially the Egypt exhibit. My 6 year old was super excited to see the dinosaurs. It wasn't overcrowded and we had reasonable parking. There is also a cafe with decent priced food.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its

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

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!
