Love the dinosaurs but they were the best part, was hoping for more Egyptian stuff but it's still an awesome place to go and take your kids. Such a great learning experience for everyone of all ages!

If you are downtown Toronto, you should definitely consider going to the ROM! It offers a wide range of history in one building. My personal favorite was the Egyptian mummy exhibit and everything pertaining to Egypt. Another part to check out is the rocks and minerals room. There are so many spectacular things to see. The ROM also offers a... More

If you are a museum type person, this museum will thrill you! Very spacious, well completed and informative exhibits will take you through different "stories" and keep you entertained. We stayed for over 4hours and did not see everything (but we read ALL the signs!!)

Strange space. Not entirely child friendly. Not easy to navigate around but nice people and good exhibits for adults

Friday night at the ROM is a must-do for anyone who is of legal drinking age. It's a great way to see all the exhibits and enjoy some delicious food and booze at the same time. A fun atmosphere and good price for what the ticket offers. Lots of different food stalls and items to chose from, and the wine... More

If you are a museum enthusiast and want to know about the origins of Ontario and Canada, as well as other things, you must visit The Royal Ontario Museum. The layout and method of display reminds one of the London Museums. Historical items may be grouped together and period furniture is placed in rooms. There are exhibits on the native... More

The Royal Ontario Museum is fantastic. We purchased The Toronto City Pass, and this was one of the attractions offered in the plan. when you walk through the doors, you will be overwhelmed with what there is to see. Unfortunately, we were on a limited time schedule and were only able to spend a couple of hours in the museum.... More

We only had about 3 hours the day we came this time. Still totally worth it as my daughter is 6 and last time was 2 and she totally got a lot out of it this time. So many things to see so we just picked the ones we knew she would enjoy first. We will for sure return again... More

the ROM has always had a reputation as an internationally-respected museum, but if you're a visitor to Toronto (or just exploring your own city), check out ROM Friday Night Live. I've been a couple of times, and the crowd is so amazingly eclectic (as is the music and food on offer)...They open the majority of galleries, where you can wander... More

Today, I had the pleasure of seeing a most interesting exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum. This current exhibit is called The Forbidden City. It began a few months ago, and is in its final weeks, scheduled to close at end of business on September 1, 2014. This attraction features clothing, cutlery, pottery, relics, and many more day-to-day items that... More
