Overview

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.

ROM has always impressed by the quality of their exhibits and the rich programs offered. The Vikings' exhibition was an isolate negative experience for us. Not impressive as exhibits and set-up. The information provided is generally available and was not supported much by exhibits. Good...More

I go a couple of times a year. There is always something new to see and new exhibits such as the Blue Whale and the Chihula blown glass display. I like the Gem room and the Native American room.

Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its

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! The Dior exhibit can take between 10-30 mins. It really depends on how much time you want to spend looking at each piece. I would allot for half hour to be sure. It was really beautiful.

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
