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.

If you really want to see the whole museum and its detail, I would give about four hours. Lots of ancient Asian art, Canadian art, and dinosaur bones. The top floor has quite the collection of Egyptian and Greek/Roman artifacts including mummies. Their cafeteria is...More

Often, museums are seen as facilities from the past, privileging the past and of no particular current relevance. Dusty, dry, boring...but not now. If you are from the Toronto area and have not been for a while, or if you are about to visit from...More

A pleasure to walk around this museum even when some of the exhibits may be a bit dull (furniture). The holocaust 'evidence' exhibit is worth the entrance fee alone - simply stunning. Everything about this museum is understated but delivers on an educational and emotional...More

A lot of interesting areas covering a huge variety of subjects. There were some areas that were, to me, quite uninteresting, eg exhibitions of 60s/70s furniture, but other areas that were fascinating. A very good family venue.

It's easy to get to The ROM from anywhere in Toronto, just jump on the TTC and head to Museum station. Admission to the museum general is $22 for adults, and there are different additional fees for different exhibitions. There is a coat check (take...More

Although unconventional looking, the ROM is very memorable for a museum. I love the variety they had to offer and was a great way to spend the day

We completely enjoyed the History of Canada. Everything from the history of Maple syruping to the prominent founders, native and otherwise. The Oriental exhibit was breathtaking, to say the least, and the fossils were spectacular!

Midtown
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

Hello, The ROM doesn't have on site parking but we do have a Green P parking lot very close to us at Bloor and Bedford Rd. (9 Bedford Rd.) I believe it is a flat rate of $14 per day. Best, Tamara

Hi! The Dior exhibit can take between 10-30 mins. It really depends on how much time you want to spend looking at each piece. I would allot for half hour to be sure. It was really beautiful.
