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.

“Take your kids to the ROM.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This museum is a major player in Canada's cultural landscape and no matter what one may think about the recent architectural embelishments, the collection, one of Canada's largest, merits a visit. Especially if your children are into dinosaurs.

“Great Dinosaur Exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This place is HUGE! We didnt even know where to start and it seemed like even with the help of a map we were still going in circles. This is a great Natural History museum and you definitely have to fit it in when you have the time to spend a few hours there.

“Huge Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I visited this museum on our last trip to Toronto. All I can say is it is huge we were there easily for 5 hours, by the end we were both exhausted. The is alot of walking to do.
The dinosaur exhibit is very popular, esp with the kids. When we went it was also freezing and by the end I felt like a popsicle so bring a sweater.

“Beautiful museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Although I haven't visited it for a while, I always enjoy going there, especially when there are special exhibits. Visitors to the city should place it on their priority list.

“A Great Family Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you have the chance, the Royal Ontario Museum is worth a visit. The exhibitions were well maintained and covered a wide variety of times, subjects and interests. The third floor is dedicated to Egypt, Africa, the Orient and Asia and is well worth the visit. Though not as large as some other museums, its holdings are quite impressive. It also has a good number of interactive displays for the kids.
