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. « less

We are members and go to ROM several times every year. It is impossible to see everything, but when there is a special exhibit don't miss it if in town. Take a couple of hours to check pout the rest of this amazing museum.

We have been members of the ROM for three years and it is one of the best things we did here. The special exhibits are excellent and we recently visited the Forbidden City exhibition which did not disappoint. The exhibits all around the museum are well laid out with exactly the right amount of information on each item. Apart from... More

The ROM was amazing. I wish I could have spent more time there, as I wanted to stand and stare at everything and just really appreciate the intricacies of the displays. We went to the Forbidden City exhibit and probably spent a good 3 hours pouring through the displays and I still felt we rushed a little at parts. The... More

I am a local trying to put myself into your (the visitor's) shoes. We go there as a family at least once a month. Of the sights to see in Toronto I would put the ROM pretty much at the top. The dinosaur collection is unique, so are the ice age skeletons as well as the collection of stuffed animals.... More

It just so happened the latest exhibit was the Forbidden City! Wow,we got to see so much that had only ever been seen in China before. The many exhibits that are there all... More

The ROM has always been a good and well managed museum located in a dynamic city. But during the last 20 years the ROM has stepped up in size and the quality and depth of its displays and exhibits. For children, adults, educators and researchers the ROM offers entertainment, history, science and a wide variety of well presented displays and... More

Royal Ontario Museum is the best in Ontario province. It looks Grand and Modern from outside. It is huge inside indeed. A lot of unique collections, great exhibits, plenty things to see for adults and kids!
