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.

Very nice museum in a trendy neighborhood. The building is very cool, but not very walk through friendly. A good way to spend a hot afternoon. This ticket is included in the city pass.

It worth the ticket price and definitely more than three hours to see all part of the musum. But if you are short on time, make sure to check out the China, Egypt and Dinosaurs exhibitions.

Good range of exhibits but of particular interest was the history of the indigenous people of Canada - outstanding and informative. Blue Whale exhibition was a bonus - and worth the additional fee. Great to see the back story to how the skeleton was recovered...More

Visited using city pass, avoid the queues! We could have spent all day here, even with two teenagers. The giant Totem Poles are magnificent.

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

Yes, the dinosaur exhibit and most of the museum is part of the General Admission. Go for the Chihuly exhibit as mentioned by one above. So, so worth it!
