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.

Excellent visit to the ROM. Main purpose was to see the Vikings exhibit which was excellent, but we now want to spend more time at the museum seeing more of their fascinating exhibits.

The Viking special exhibit was quite good although not as well done as some prior special exhibits. It seemed they were a bit short of material and just spread it out over the normal area making some areas quite thin. Having said that, there parts...More

Sometimes, a place is greater than the sum of it's parts. Sometimes it falls short. Despite having a lot of great artifacts and many of the ingredients, the ROM lacks the desire or the mental bandwidth to be one of the world's great museums. The...More

Compact exhibit of Dior fashions. As a professional in a related field it was great to go with colleagues and really discuss the pieces. My only complaints were the accompanying photos were much too dark to make out the details, could have been a lot...More

It’s a nice museum, but you should definitely bring some time. There is a lot to see, but we thought it was a little bit uncoordinated.. There was a special exhibition with wildlife photography which was very nice. Loved the pictures. Not a great place...More

Had a wonderful day with my daughter renewing my fascination with the relics contained in the ROM. Fortunate to have experienced the Viking exhibit and the beautiful Christian Dior exhibition. I always learn something new at the ROM.

Always a great spot to visit with family. Quite expensive for a museum, but isn't everything in Toronto?! Buy your tickets online (print them or download to your phone) and you can skip the ticket line entirely. Don't recommend the cafe, not nearly enough vegetarian...More

If you like dinosaurs it’s a good place to go. There are an Egypt and Greek parts and you can see some stuff about Chinese culture. Among other things.

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

Hi there, I'm not really sure about buying tickets on-line. My suggestion is that you call the ROM and find out the stipulation they use for "entry time." Personally, I think this is 'hit and miss' way of getting tickets... More
