Overview
More
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.

Granted we didn't allocate more than about and hour & a half to visit, but the displays were so-so. Nothing spectacular or highly memorable. Disappointing.

Our family loves the ROM. Great dinosaurs and always amazing visiting exhibits. I definitely recommend the Chihuly exhibit this year (2016), the colours and creativity of these sculptures are really unlike anything we'd seen before.
