The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is among the world’s leading museums of natural history and world cultures. In combining a universal museum of cultures with that of natural history, the ROM offers an unusual breadth of experience to our audiences from around the world. We realize more acutely now that nature and humanity are intertwined, and the ROM offers many examples in its collections and programs of these fundamental relationships.

This is the perfect place for a winter day activity. You can spend hours here touring all the different wings that hold a crazy amount of artifacts. We originally were drawn to this museum because we were told that it has some of the most complete dinosaur skeletons and it did not disappoint. I would definitely pick and choose what... More

Excellent interesting museum with very interactive children's area (including dressing up section and Inuit teepee), interesting and informative section about Inuit culture and heritage and lots of the other exhibits and displays you'd expect in a major museum. Something for everyone - highly recommended for families with children or teenagers of any age!

I spent 3 hours in the museum and still did not see everything. The museum had several floors and most were fully stocked with artifacts from all over the globe. Each section was vast in information and visuals to entice any reader. Higher levels of the museum had some empty parts but had random other pieces from much older times.... More

The museum is very busy and had a great layout and really encompasses their history recognising the colonial start and the original people of the land in two seperate areas i loved the native peoples exhibit

Always enjoy heading to the ROM, usually to see a special exhibit as well as touring parts of their permanent collection. This time we saw the Wildlife Photography exhibit which was really very good - over 100 really amazing photos well displayed. Always like to see the mineral and gem collection which it really spectacular IMHO. Also went through the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
