The ROM has something for everybody, and some great surprises. The museum is well run, and has a good combination of crowd-pleasers (e.g. dinosaurs) and more challenging material. The layout of individual sections is clear, but I found it a bit of an aptitude test to navigate the whole building. If you are going with younger children, beware that the modern art section on the top floor has some material that is not appropriate for pre-teens. Plan to spend at least 3 hours - there is a lot to see, and you'll want to take breaks. If you go on a nice day, it's a good idea to allow some extra time to explore the neighbourhood of the museum - Queen's Park and the University of Toronto campus are both close by and worth a stroll. Parking in the vicinity of the ROM is understandably brutal. If I were to go again I would definitely take the subway - after all, the ROM is one of the Toronto landmarks that has its own subway station!
