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

    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!

    This place is a must. It's an architectural marvel from the outside, and the exhibits are varied and magnificent.

    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.

    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.

    If you parked across the street at municipal parking, ask for parking validation at the museum counter.

    Fun place to check out especially if you have kids. There's different exhibitions going on every few months as well. Cheaper tickets are available Fridays after 4:30 PM

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    If you're wondering how they got the big totem poles through the small doors... They built the building around them.

    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

    CityPass says to take the St George subway stop off the University line. You want the Museum stop right before it. Unless you want to visit the shoe museum instead...

    Go to the first of the two dinosaur galleries and find the Parasaurolophus walkeri (the duckbill with the trombone-like crest sticking out the back of its head). It's the real McCoy and type specimen. Read more
