I have been to the ROM three times now. After you take in the beauty of the exterior of the ROM (which looks like a crystal star that fell to earth) you enter into a building housing an incredible diversity of art. There are always new exhibits that really open up your eyes to the different parts of our everyday... More

Generally, the ROM is "ok." Two exhibits should not be missed however. First is the exhibit of fossils. Very nice collection. Second is the First Nation Canada exhibit. Great history lesson of Canada.

Visited the ROM to see the Chihuly Glass Exhibit. As a collector of crystal, this was a very enjoyable experience. I had been to the exhibit in Montreal 2 years ago, but I do believe the "boat" at this exhibit surpasses the beauty of those.

it has tons of collections from the world, very unique and good place to visit. I like specifically the Chinese antiques, some of them I haven't seen before, and I am glad it is preserved well and open to public.

Great place for the whole family. There is something for everyone. May dinosaur bones and other Egyptian artifacts, and cultures from around the world. We saw the Chihuly Glass art exhibit. It was beautiful and more teenagers and over. The dinosaurs are for everyone as well as the rest of the place. We didn't have time to see it all.... More

We’ve had recurring memberships many times and even after countless visits I return happily. The architecture alone is worth the visit and is truly world class. Beyond that it enjoys and extremely eclectic collection that is sure to have something for everyone. Essentially an entire floor dedicated to children so equally attractive to families. Very much downtown in the heart... More

Currently, the ROM is exhibiting the Chihuly glass exhibit. Just a joyful experience. Takes around 45 minutes to view. Less crowded on weekedays.

I visited the ROM with my family - 2 grandparents, two parents and 5 year old twins. We paid nearly 100$s CA. This is way too much, even for this excellent and varied experience.The museum manages to appeal to everyone, children and adults alike. I liked the way they had a children's room with games costumes puzzles and informative but... 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.
