|About these ratings|
Perched on the northern edge of the University of Toronto campus, the Royal Ontario Museum (known to residents as the "ROM") is a must-do for any museum lover. Since its establishment in 1912, the ROM has accumulated more than six million artifacts ranging from mummies to dinosaur skeletons, bats to Chinese sculpture, and a recent expansion has allowed for even more displays. With so much to see, make sure to plan your time wisely, otherwise you'll find yourself wandering the museum for longer than you expected. One IgoUgo.com user had this to say: “As one might expect in the nation's largest city, this is a world-class museum with some excellent cultural exhibits and artifacts … To fully explore the museum, it can easily take half a day! There's really a lot to see!” If you're traveling with children, make sure to spend some time around the hands-on displays.
The ROM is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and until 8:30 p.m. on Friday evenings. General admission to the museum ranges from about $24 CAD (about $24 USD) for adults to $16 CAD for children (entry to special exhibits costs extra, and there are reduced rates on Friday evenings). Entry to the ROM is also included when you purchase a Toronto CityPass.
