    I enjoyed getting lost in the numerous cultures the ROM had on display. It was like going back in time. Every culture had a variety of art to observe. If you love history and learning about different cultures, consider visiting the ROM!

    Spend there all afternoon. Surprisingly good collection, especially paintings including Canadian impressionists. Strange use of third language for explanation (which only a small percentage of Canadian indigenous people speak.

    This is an obvious must-do for any hockey fan. The most amazing hockey memorabilia, fun interactive games, and just so much to see and look at. So incredible seeing so much hockey history in one building. I took my fiance here for her first time and she had a blast! If I had to pick a best time to go it would be a weekday around 1:30 or 2:00 because school trips will later to end at that time and 3 hours is lots of time to look at everything it has to offer

    An exquisite exhibition of all of Canada. I learnt so much going through this exhibit that shows Canada in a whole new way! The details, the lighting, the movement and the flow makes this an unforgettable experience! It’s also a plus to meet the person who made it all happen. He was very modest and explained to us how it all worked out. A MUST visit.

    Wasn't expecting much as just whiling away a couple of hours before leaving town but we were pleasantly surprised. It was very interesting & we learned a fair bit, definitely worth a visit.

    Nice place to go in the summer. Many authentic pieces, and storytelling by friendly welcoming volunteers. They are really cool historic sites. This is a must-visit.

    It was a neat experience. I haven't been to anything like that in North America. Lots of beautiful Arabic and Islamic art.

    This museum is very, very unique. I had never heard of a museum dedicated to pottery, ceramics, and porcelain throughout the ages. This intrigued me. I actually spent longer in this museum than at the Royal Museum of Canada! It was just to interesting! The history, the methods used by different cultures to achieve their desired result... Amazing!

    A huge spread out museum but has a confusing layout.
    Parts are accessible by shuttle bus only.
    There are great exhibits but not well connected.
    Brings to comparison the similar centre in Minneapolis which is much better laid out and has more helpful staff.
    Must keep a full day to see this especially due to time wasted waiting for the shuttle buses.

    The Plato to NATO of ceramics and porcelain. The gift shop has a great selection of contemporary Canadian ceramic art. I got a $3 discount for travelling to the museum with Presto, so keep that in mind.

    Took the kids (9 and 13) for a low cost morning during our recent trip to Toronto. We didn't join a tour, just walked around on our own. The 13 year old proclaimed it "boring" but the 9 year old and both adults enjoyed the walk. We thought there was just enough reading to keep you informed but not so much that it got tedious. The best part was that it was free! We were happy to introduce our American kids to another perspective on history (especially the indigenous perspective), and we appreciated how well maintained and welcoming this exhibit was. Thanks Toronto!

    I visited Mackenzie House to join its (ghost) storytelling activity and for some history-packed fun on a winter day. This is the last home of Toronto's first mayor, for many, is the city's most haunted house. Sitting in a dimly lit room built in 1830, with only candle lights, sipping apple cider and munching cheese shortbread, I got this unique chance to listen to ghost stories written in 1863. Also tried the Washington Press, one of the oldest printing presses in Canada, to print a lovely new year card for myself. 😚

    This building is connected to other attractions, particularly hockey hall of fame. In the winter, you may use this building as a temporary shelter from cold weather. This place is well accessible via public transportation or on foot from other attractions.
