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.

We went to this museum to see the Chihuly display, but this museum is worth seeing for all its displays. It is also very easy to get there as it has its own subway stop, it was 15 minutes from our hotel.

Just not enough time to see everything. We thought three hours would be enough... wrong. Take all day, every exhibit takes a long time ago through because it's so informative. We're going back again before leaving Toronto, don't want to miss any of it

We had the pleasure of taking our relatives from England to the Museum in Toronto . Being history buffs they were overwhelmed with the many exhibits . This is a place where you could spend days and not see all there is . I would suggest to spend the extra and visit the blown glass exhibit just breathtaking to say... More

Enchanting collection of glass sculptures displayed on black reflective surfaces. Also stunning Pavillion with fan-shaped 'flowers'.

Plan to spend a whole day if not more as this place is never ending with beautiful displays and exhibts. We found the gift shop very expensive and way above our budget.

Don't miss this beautiful exhibit of blown glass. Some is similar to his installation Bellagio in Vegas. Brilliant colors, design masterpieces.

This is definitely a place where you can roam. We liked that there was plenty to see, but also that there was space between the exhibits to walk as well as spots to sit and look. That allowed us to take our time.

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.
