Loved the museum but would have liked to have had more time to spend there. Also if you are Indigenous you get in free as I did with a Metis card. Many very interesting exhibits.

This is such an impressive museum, with so many exhibits. We spent so long in ancient Egypt we felt we didn't leave enough time for the natural biology section and dinosaur section that we found after. We loved the old architecture from the original building,...More

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
