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.

I was astounded with the quality and the diversity of the collections at this excellent museum. I love this place as a semi-regular place to visit! Great job, people!

This is a fantastic museum, definitely worth checking out even if just for the dinosaur exhibit and the gemstone/mineral exhibit. Absolutely amazing! Coming from London, I have to say that the ROM's dinosaur exhibit beats the Natural History Museum one by far.

not bad, great selection of exhibition. However, if you previously visited european museums, such as British Museam, the one in Paris, Berlin... you will not see nothing new and won't be impressed. But it is nice place to spend time in.

My husband and I often go to the ROM and it never gets old there's lots of history and natural history to explore and of course the bat cave! Great fun for everyone who loves discovery.

I felt like a kid while exploring the museum. So many things to see and discover. The Dinosaur category was so packed with people which made it a bit difficult for us to take pictures, but everything was okay. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, but the employees at the souvenir shops can be a bit pushy sometimes. But I... More

If you like museums this one is nice. The collection of Dinosaurs - many from the North american Continent was intriguing. The Bat Cave is one of the coolest attractions I have ever seen in a Museum.

Took in the FNL (Friday Night Live) event at the ROM this past weekend with friends and it was a ton of fun. Several bar stations are scattered around the museum, each level has a "club" area with dancing, tables and a bar, and you can wander most of the exhibits (some are closed to beverages, so you can't take...

Your journey to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) begins with your disembarking at the Museum TTC Station. The station is outfitted with faux pharaohs, totems, and other museum quality items that get you in the mood for a day of museum discovery. Situated in an ornate older building, the ROM has recently added a very modern front entrance that lets... More

Another must see when visiting Toronto. A little advice: When visiting reserve the whole day for the ROM because there's just so much to see that if you try to fit it into a half day you won't appreciate it as much.
