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 museum is amazing! There is so much to see and the exhibits are really well laid out. The temporary travelling exhibits are always worth checking out too and usually that is when I go visit. Really a must-see in Toronto if you like museums!

This place is like all the Smithsonian museums mashed into one. And that's not a bad thing! Mainly a museum of natural history, it's got a good collection of fossils, art from antiquity, etc. Wonderful gems and natural metals. My wife and I spent a rainy day here and LOVED it.

A few of us decided to visit this attraction and we spent around 2 hours here and it was enough because there is just so much to see. You need a couple of days to see everything! Very interesting and exhibits are well set up. Hard to find your way around at the start. Visit if you are into this... More

Royal Ontario Museum is a must see in your Toronto visit! Do reserve a half Day for this visit! It's quite expensive but it's worthy!

Flew in for a day in Toronto & Royal Ontario Museum was high on the list to visit. We walked up from the CN tower along University to reach the museum to be told by staff the museum is closed for a private function. Nothing on the website stated this & would never see a museum of this scale in... More

This Museum is Huge! Spread over 4 floors there is more than enough to cater for everyone. Exhibits range from stunning rocks from the moon and our own planet to the evolution and impact of humans on biodiversity. Lots of animals to see and a fun section for the kids. Fun facts and interaction stations available. There are exhibits spanning... More

We were so lucky to be visiting when this exhibition was on.. Dale Chihuli is a pioneer in the studio glass me cement. His works are a riot of colour in installations that fill the room. Truly exceptional. A must see if you come across his work. The rest of the museum is excellent as well

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.
