Owner description: 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.

“Pretty good”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Love the dinosaurs but they were the best part, was hoping for more Egyptian stuff but it's still an awesome place to go and take your kids. Such a great learning experience for everyone of all ages!

“Awesome museum!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

If you are downtown Toronto, you should definitely consider going to the ROM! It offers a wide range of history in one building. My personal favorite was the Egyptian mummy exhibit and everything pertaining to Egypt. Another part to check out is the rocks and minerals room. There are so many spectacular things to see. The ROM also offers a large dinosaur exhibit which includes fully real and partially real dinosaurs. This museum is pretty amazing, and I would love to go back!

“The place to go when in Toronto”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

If you are a museum type person, this museum will thrill you! Very spacious, well completed and informative exhibits will take you through different "stories" and keep you entertained. We stayed for over 4hours and did not see everything (but we read ALL the signs!!)

Strange space. Not entirely child friendly. Not easy to navigate around but nice people and good exhibits for adults

“Friday Night at the ROM”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Friday night at the ROM is a must-do for anyone who is of legal drinking age. It's a great way to see all the exhibits and enjoy some delicious food and booze at the same time. A fun atmosphere and good price for what the ticket offers. Lots of different food stalls and items to chose from, and the wine is decent given the $6 price tag.
