ROM is a great museum that is enjoyable for you and your family. My favorite is the Natural History gallery which boasts our rich biodiversity and how it is continuously being threatened by invasive human beings. Definitely learned a lot from this exhibit!

Jackson LOVED the bat cave! He went through many times! The hands on Biodiversity area was great too. The room with all the birds and the area with the insects were very enjoyable. The Great Whale Exhibit was awesome, as was, of course, the dinosaurs! We were pleasantly surprised with how well the cafe flowed and prices were reasonable. We were disappointed things in the gift shop were extremely overpriced. We were hoping to just get a little something to remember our day.

The museum was fantastic! The Viator process was ridiculous. You don't skip the line, you have to present your download so they can scan it and give you a ticket. The site was easy but a waste of time.

There are so many historical artifacts there that I wish I had reserved more time to peruse it all more closely. Would advise visitors to set aside at least 4 -6 hours to go through the museum. Went with my adult daughter.

What a lovely time my sister and I had at the museum. As educators, we toured the Treasure exhibit and was blown away. We learned a lot about the history, and culture of India. The gift shop allowed us to purchase books and cultural artifacts.to use in our classroom with our students. What a wonderful place to learn and explore. Then Johnson Gilrs

The Michael Lee-Chin Crystal

The ROM is almost as renowned for being an architectural showstopper as it is for its cultural holdings. As part of a major project in 2007, the museum enlisted architect Daniel Libeskind to add a bold new wing—an aluminum-and-glass structure that juts out from the older century-old facade. The new wing was well-received, quickly cementing the museum as an architectural icon of Toronto.
