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.

Love the setup of this museum and how they present their exhibits. We were here on a Sunday and it was incredibly crowded, but awesome nonetheless.

How long has it been since you've been to the Museum? Do yourself a favor and visit soon! Participating in the tours should be part of your visit, since the expert volunteers add so much to the educational experience.

We visited after hours to attend an Opera Atelier performance. It was held in a great hall on the main floor. Interesting venue. Would be a good spot for a corporate event. No idea what the museum exhibits are like.

The ROM has some incredible permanent exhibits housed in an old building and in a modern structure, but the current temporary exhibits are fabulous. We saw The Vikings, Christian Dior, and Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibits. Definitely worthwhile. Plan to spend at least 2.5...More

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its

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

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.

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
