Loved the Blue Whale exhibit! There are so many different exhibits about Prehistoric animals and Indigenous people and The Bat Cave !

I think everyone will find in ROM something special to discover - ancient art or mummies or dinosaurs or even sandwiches in the cafe ;) But do not miss amazing collection of minerals and crystals, it's one of the best!

The Blue Whale exhibit is awesome and a must see. I loved the experience and the way it was laid out. Nice museum with some great displays and attractions. The animal displays were well done. It is very noisy and a ton of children but...More

This must be the coldest Museum I have ever visited. I was freezing wherever we went. Maybe it's got something to do with preserving exhibits but I've never felt this cold and in any other Museum. Another fact I didn't like was that many exhibits...More

This is a very good museum to visit. It has loads of dinosaur skeletons, Egyptian mummies etc, Chinese architecture, meteorites and precious jewels - amongst much more. There was a special exhibition about Canada: First Peoples while we were there.

I really enjoyed this place. Lots to see and read (if you're into that). I have been here twice in the past two years and still haven't been through the whole thing once. I really liked the prehistoric stuff. Reasonably priced.

If you are, like me, a huge museums fan, you will defnitly love the ROM: Collections from all over the world and periods, beautifully arranged through a big buildging. What am I saying? Even if you are not a fan, you'll have a great time...More

I am not a big museum kind of person. But this museum was enormous and beautiful. I bought the Citypass and this attraction was one of the options we chose.

We went mainly to see the blue whale exhibit. It was amazing seeing the skeleton up close. The rest of the museum is interesting, pretty standard museum things. The dinosaurs were great.

This was different from what I was expecting, but very cool all the same. The First Nations exhibit was amazing. The Asian artifacts were impressive. I've never seen so many dinosaurs in one place, either.

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

Yes, the dinosaur exhibit and most of the museum is part of the General Admission. Go for the Chihuly exhibit as mentioned by one above. So, so worth it!
