Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto Reviews
A huge and impressive museum with a very wide variety of displays (minerals, fossils, current animals, ecology, and a wide variety of cultural artifacts from across the world in several large displays). The building is a cool fusion of new and old with the modern crystal architecture overlaid on top of a historic castle. Special exhibits rotate a few times a year and are always worth seeing. Ticket prices have gone up and down over the years; currently a little high for my taste but I'll still go. A yearly membership is worthwhile for the special exhibition passes alone.
The museum hosts some great exhibits and exhibitions but has a few negatives that impact a full five-star experience. In 2017 they reopened the old entrance off Queens Park which is fantastic as it offers easy access from the Museum subway stop and in 2018 they added free coat check as a membership perk. They routinely host a exhibition of Wildlife photography which is amazing and their dinosaur and biodiversity exhibits are great. However some exhibits have not had significant updates in years (Egypt for example) and the layout of the building is hindered in that the new addition is essentially a growth off the old building which makes for some navigation challenges to the newcomer. Additionally the cafe is a touch pricey on site but they have space to eat if you bring your own food so plan ahead.
Not only is it probably the best museum in Ontario I would argue that it's probably the best museum in all of Canada. There is so much culture and knowledge portrayed in such a civilized clean accessible open manner. The first three floors touch on important time. Such as ancient Egypt ancient Rome Ancient Asia. There's also elements of animals and geology insects birds large mammals dinosaurs. However the best is on the fourth and fifth floor which this is where exhibits from all over the world stop in Toronto. Recommended for friends families dates and even yourself if you just want to take your time away from it all.
Amazing time! The viking exhibition was absolutely amazing! The whole experience was fantastic. I absolutely loved it. The authentic viking pieces were so intricate and beautiful. The rest of the ROM is also amazing. You can truly spend a whole day here and not see everything.
It's always a pleasure to go to Rom. 1) great collections, always engaging material 2) great place to explore contemporary architecture ( Crystal building) and classical architecture (original building) 3) super-friendly staff with tours around the clock. They are very knowledgeable. 4) their food is good. Better than most museums around. 5) kids have the time of their lives. 6) their gift shop has cool stuff.
