Opened in 1914, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) showcases art, culture, and nature from around the globe and across the ages. One of North America's most renowned cultural institutions, Canada's largest museum is home to a world-class collection of more than six million objects and specimens, featured in 40 gallery and exhibition spaces. As the country’s preeminent field research institute and an international leader in new and original findings in biodiversity, palaeontology, earth sciences, the visual arts, material culture and archaeology, the ROM plays a vital role in advancing our global understanding of the artistic, cultural and natural world. The Renaissance ROM expansion project (2007) merged the iconic architectural heritage of the original building with the Studio Daniel Libeskind-designed Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. A distinctive new symbol of Toronto for the 21st century, the Crystal marked the beginning of a new era for the ROM as the country's premier cultural and social destination.

I fondly recall visiting the ROM regularly as a student living in Toronto. I could not get enough of it. I felt the same after this latest visit. This is a stunning museum with amazing materials beautifully displayed. You probably won't get to see it...More

We're not really museum dwellers but this was included on our city pass and I wanted to check out the building itself. We arrived just as a free 45min tour was starting, perfect timing! Our guide took us to 8 different parts of the museum...More

The ROM has new exhibit every couple months, nice selections, and the building itself is worth seeing, old architect infused with futuristic new design, amazing to see.

Anyone who has visited another city (US or overseas) will understand this comment. Charging the high price of admission and then another $30 to see a special exhibit is just gouging.

Dropped into the ROM on a CityPass after hopping off the City Tour bus. What a beautifully arranged museum. The architecture is challenging in places but the lines are clean and modern. The displays are great.. easy to follow, fantastically set out and well explained....More

Renovated few years ago with addition to the front of cristal designed by Libeskind. Presently has fascinating, unique exhibit of blue whale. Easy walk to Bata Shoes Museum, Queens Part (Ontario Parliament), Royal Conservatory and Koerner Hall and University of Toronto.

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

Hi there, I'm not really sure about buying tickets on-line. My suggestion is that you call the ROM and find out the stipulation they use for "entry time." Personally, I think this is 'hit and miss' way of getting tickets... More
