    For me the best thing you can see in this museum was the dinosaurs and the entire collection of Canadian art , to engage in the predecessor cultures : Aborigines and European who formed the country.

    Great museum. Especially loved the exhibitions about Canada and the dinos. Come early in the morning to avoid huge crowds.

    If you're ever in Toronto, even for a short while, you should bother to visit the ROM. Not only are the exhibits great and diverse too, the architecture alone is an attraction.

    Very family friendly with lots of special added hands on fun over the holidays. I've been there many times over the past few years and find something new each time!

    They've got dinosaurs and a bat cave and a touch-and-feel area. Not many museums are as kid-friendly as this. It's not too big and it's right in the heart of the city. Read more

    This is one of Canada's best museums concentrating on world culture and natural history. Enter through the amazing Crystal houses, and go around the museum's five major galleries.

    Didn't love the 2.50$ per item to check at wardrobe and the place was not very warm (on a very cold day) but you can really spend several rainy days here! So much to see and very well curated imho.

    Love the hands on area and the bat cave - this is a museum for adults and kids! Definitely, good value if you take family membership!
  • Karina of knittingandpurling.com
    Ask any kid who has visited the ROM: the CIBC Discovery Gallery's dino dig is a must-see (or rather, must-DO)! Be sure to allow extra time (there might be a line) & park your stroller at the entrance.

    Whale exhibit was very cool and informative. Blue whale was beached and a few years later it is at ROM now.

    Can't recommend the Friday Night Socials enough to students of all varieties, from social to nerdy and everything in between. An unprecedented crossover worth more than one night's visit.

    The museum itself has many different exhibits which is good if you like a lot of variety. The staff member we encountered was rude though. They give you a free map too!

    When your there don't forget to check out the new bat cave and dino exhibits, they are a lot of fun. Also, if you're feeling adventureous (and feel like spending a little bit of money) go to the rest

    We went for the photo exhibition and then enjoyed a quick walk through. I am disappointed in the disfigurement of the Chrystal add-on. But the old museum still shines through.

    You probably saw the awesome architecture already (unless you entered blindfolded), so we'll save you that one. Hope you brought your camera... pictures with the family at the museum are awesome!
