Royal Ontario Museum Reviews
We went to the Museum in December year end holidays. Weather was very warm, we did street parking - just note that there is a 3 hour max so you would have to renew it. There is an app for city... more »

My favorite place in Toronto. If you're coming here, I recommend the transit instead of by car. Hard to find parking even on weekdays. Post graduate students get to visit for free on Tuesdays. Museum is generally closed on Monday during December or holiday season. Biggest museum around and houses 4 floors of different spaces. A lot to see, for people of all ages. There are lunch areas, places to sit and take in some views. An amazing job on part of the administration. Never had an issue or problem. I recommend it to everyone who has an admiration of arts or history. You should also check for exhibitions during your visit, sometimes there are some extra or new exhibitions being hosted. The week I visited was National Geographic's Photographer on level 4.
I've gone to the ROM several times throughout my life. Mostly on school trips when I was younger, and with friends as an adult. Just something nostalgic about it! The dinosaur exhibit and bat cave are always a must see. Now that I have children of my own they can enjoy the kids discovery area! Definitely a bit pricey, but if you enjoy museums, it is one of the better ones for sure.
