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.

If you have kids that are interested in Dinosaurs they have lots. They four different floor of different exhibits. You can spend at least 3 - 4 hours going around this place. They have a place to get yourself something to eat while you are there.

We went with our two kids, 11 and 12, and had a great time. No matter if you're a fan of ancient cultures like chinese or japanese, or you like dinausors or natural sciences, you'll find an exhibit that'll make your visit worthwile!

If you have ever wanted to see an actual totem pole, come here and be prepared to visit your chiropractor later. They are BIG! If you get there before end of Jan 2017, see the Chihuly exhibition.

The ROM is a great place with a variety of permanent and temporary exhibits. Dinosaurs, Canadian history, and ancient cultures. This visit had special exhibits on nature photography, textiles and native inhabitants.

Apart from the art exhibits, the gift shop is really worthwhile visiting. We picked up many interesting items to keep as Christmas presents for our grandchildren. There's always something a little bit different to purchase.

I have been going to the ROM since 1970 and still love the collection and special exhibits. We just stopped in as we always enjoy wandering the collections when we are in Toronto and Chihuly's glass was an amazing surprise - so happy our adventures took us there. Love the Chinese and Egyptian collections too and this time took in... More

Not an expensive museum. The design of the architecture is interesting. However, the expositions are just not attractive enough.

The Museum is very big and has a lot to see. From artwork to animals to prehistoric. You do lots of waling so wear comfortable shoes.

I am a history junkie so my boyfriend took me here as a treat. It was a great night, awesome things to see at a reasonable price. Also conveniently located for those of you who ride the subway

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
