The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is among the world’s leading museums of natural history and world cultures. 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. We realize more acutely now that nature and humanity are intertwined, and the ROM offers many examples in its collections and programs of these fundamental relationships.

Great Chineses collection the second biggest outside China. All in all good in its class, but I hate the Michael Chan extEnsion. Full of wasted space

Fantastic museum, the artefacts are beautiful and well displayed. We especially enjoyed the dinosaurs, it's good to know what parts of the skeleton are real and what is replicated!! The layout of the museum is a little confusing but we had a map to help us out. Cafe is canteen style food like burgers, soups, sandwiches, chicken, fries, salad etc.... More

Lots to see and do. I went using a Toronto City Pass so great value - there is so much to see, not in the slightest bit boring either. Given the cold weather it is a great opportunity to do something different.

We recently visited the ROM on a Friday evening. Admission is cheaper after 4.30 pm.($10) There are many exhibits but we particularly enjoyed level 2 where you will find displays on bio-diversity, dinosaurs, sea animals and Egyptian history. There were lots of families enjoying the museum.

Only spent a couple hours there but enjoyed this museum. The dinosaur collection is very good and extensive. Also enjoyed the Canada exhibits.

Something for everyone...go through quick, or linger long. Every time I go I see something new. This time we participated in the Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt..it was fun and challenging.

Give yourself plenty of time to see all the exhibits, this place goes on forever, you don't want to miss anything, and there's something for everyone.

This building is amazing! We took a few hours but still didn't get to see it all- you could spend a full day here there is so much to see- and stuff that you would actually want to see! The native American stuff is fascinating and the pictures of the leaders of various peoples from the Wendat and Iroquois and... More

The customer service was excellent! It took about 2-3 hours to go through the entire place. I loved all of the exhibitions. The space is vast and insightful

The museum is quite big and the collections are sizable ( but definitely not like the smithsonian museums). Kids would love the dinosaur section. And there are lot of resting chairs throughout the museum (important if you are traveling with Kids and grandparents). If you are touring Toronto, get the city pass which lets you visit 5 places with much... More
