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.

Truly there is something for everyone at the ROM. Every floor of this world class museum has something to offer. Locals would benefit greatly from a membership as there is just too much to see in one visit. Members also get free entry into special exhibits. Tourists should try to narrow down their choices as this is a large space.... More

An relatively extensive museum filled with natural and ancient history. Not the the most logically ordered museum but certainly plenty to look at. Very extremely overpriced (compared to similar state museums around the world and content) at $17 especially given the the number of unruly school children crowding the museum on a school day. They pretty much crowded out the... More

I absolutely love the ROM - everything I remember to be exciting and mesmerizing when I visited as a child still stands true today. There weren't enough hours in the day to visit the entire museum but some highlights as a nature lover included the dinosaurs, the entire natural history floor for that matter, and the wildlife photography exhibit. The... More

I hadn't been in the ROM since I was a child and it was every bit as much fun to go back as an adult. So much to see, great displays and so much variety.

We are members of the museum and go regularly. Our grandchildren, 6 and 9, have been going with us for a few years now, and they love it there. We get great value for our membership and recommend it for anyone with kids - they have awesome programming for children.

I love going to the ROM, it never disappoints! I would recommend getting your tickets in advance as the line to buy tickets is often long, but we were able to bypass that line and walk right into the museum. Our group went to see the Pompeii exhibit, which was well worth the extra money! I would suggest doing some... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel 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 Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
