The Royal Ontario Museum Hosts an amazing collection of artifacts ranging from ancient relics to modern textiles. This extremely well kept and preserved collection is also interestingly displayed in this museum.
The Museum not only has collections related to Canada but also to the entire world. Ancient busts from Rome are an interesting exhibit to see. So is the collection of royal dresses and costumes. There is also an awesome dinosaur exhibit. The display on Chinese architecture is very interesting albeit limited. There is also an amazing gallery of preserved birds that will certainly delight the kids. The collections are very vast and varied. Every turn you take will be a new journey and a new discovery. Just strolling down the corridors takes you on an adventure.
In short, the Royal Ontario Museum is a place where everyone will find something or the other of interest. This collection which is a matter of Canada is certainly one of the 5 must visit places when in Toronto. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Toronto Itinerary 7 Days.

Gorgeous very impressive largest museum in Canada. Alluring very unique architecture and one of a kind exterior design. Looks like crown jewel of museums, Bloor street looks even more luxurious and beautiful. It hosts many exhibits and fantastic exhibitions from all over the world. You can’t see all of them in one visit but still you can see a lot of fabulous sculptures, exhibits, arts and much more. Doesn’t matter how many times l come it’s always very interesting and fun. Fantastic area for kids on the second floor. Nice souvenir shop and selection of food. No picture or reviews do it justice you have to experience for yourself and enjoy spending time there admiring historical artwork and many fantastic exhibits. A lot to learn. Wonderful day to spend through pieces of history. Mesmerizing.❤️🇨🇦
"Beauty in things exists in the mind that contemplates them". (You can find this great quote on a mosaic picture on the floor on the third floor) The ROM is the keeper of the history of the ancient (and not too ancient) world in a modern, crystal shaped building. Don't even try to see it all in a day. Grab a map and pick your favorite exhibits then come back for more later. It's worth to get a membership if you visit more than once a year. I find the Treasures of the World exhibit fascinating ("gem museum") as well as the history of the world (by country/era) on the top floor. There is a dinosaur exhibit also and tons of areas for kids to see and do. It's spacious, well organized and well staffed. The cafeteria is great, too, if you're planning an all day visit, there is no need to eat elsewhere. The few pictures I'm posting with this review don't do the museum justice but hopefully they will strike your interest and visit soon. The coat check is $3/article, which is about the only negative I have to say about the ROM - I'm not a "cheap" person but at a museum like this, IMO coat the check should be free.
One of my all time favorite museums. They offer a ton of amazing collections and displays spread out of multiple floors. From a vast variety of animals and environmental displays to ancient collections from Japan, China, Korea. To ancient relics from Egypt etc. You can easily spend an entire day here and still have to come back to see it all. They also offer great themed nights/events. These place deserves multiple visits
Amazing dinosaur exhibit - that's all we looked at with our kids. Only downside is that some of the audio-visual displays are too high for my tall 7 year old... the screen looks black from her angle. An easy and appropriate fix I would think 🤔
This museum is large enough that you can get a feel for cultures from around the world but not too large that you can't see all of it in a day. The collections have descriptions in both French and English so neither is very long. The museum also changes out its special exhibits so that there is something fresh every few weeks.
