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.

Where do I start. There is so much to see and learn frio old artifacts to mummies. It is so modern and well built. It should be they've spent millions for the renovations.

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!
