Owner description: Opened in 1914, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) showcases art, culture, and nature from around the globe and across the ages. One of North America's most renowned cultural institutions, Canada's largest museum is home to a world-class collection of more than six million objects and specimens, featured in 40 gallery and exhibition spaces. As the country’s preeminent field research institute and an international leader in new and original findings in biodiversity, palaeontology, earth sciences, the visual arts, material culture and archaeology, the ROM plays a vital role in advancing our global understanding of the artistic, cultural and natural world. The Renaissance ROM expansion project (2007) merged the iconic architectural heritage of the original building with the Studio Daniel Libeskind-designed Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. A distinctive new symbol of Toronto for the 21st century, the Crystal marked the beginning of a new era for the ROM as the country's premier cultural and social destination.

Love the ROM and always will, always fun and interesting. Got to see the crazy dolls on display right now. It's on the MUST list for Toronto!

The only disappointment I had was that I had only allowed an afternoon. Where you could spend a weekend getting lost in this amazing place. I am not a fan of museums but fell in love with this one. Was at Christmas so we saw the dinosaur exhibition which amazed not only a 6 year old but the grownups too. A little pricey but in line with everything else in Toronto would definitely make a visit no matter what age you are but just to mention the kids area is just out standing with great staff on hand to really engage with their experience.

The ROM always has several interesting exhibits, I would recommend going for sure. They also started to offer events on friday evenings for youth/adults that are great.

I was so disappointed with the new Museum. It is hard to navigate and the exhibits are boring. My kids couldn't wait to get out of there.
