Owner description: 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.

This is a great place to take kids and yet also appeals to adults. Educational and always great shows like the Dead Sea Scrolls

“Quick visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

We didn't have a lot of time but we really enjoyed it. The signage could have been more clear. It seemed we spent a lot of time trying to find the right elevator. There was a huge incredibly loud school group there. Luckily we were able to see the Mayan exhibit while they were eating lunch. That alone was worth the price. Lunch at the restaurant was pricey but good.

Pretty average as far as museums go. Some interesting art but you have to look at everything .

My kids love the ROM so much, they have asked that we buy an annual pass! There is nothing stuffy about this museum!
