A wonderful day out with the family. So many things to learn about, the kids and I had a great time. I highly recommend arriving early.

During the summer of 2016, I went to the ROM for the first time in a few years when I happened to be in Ontario. What a great place! Highly recommend the temporary shows, the glass blowing exhibition that was going on at the time was amazing. Bring a water bottle if you get thirsty.

An absolute must-visit for any local or tourist in town! I would highly recommend taking a day to spend in here to get the most bang for your buck. Even when the ticket lines are full, they go extremely fast so there isn't much of a wait. All the exhibits are kept in pristine condition. Information provided throughout is well written and concise, and keeps me interested the entire time! Great for folks of all ages. Tickets allow you in-and-out privileges, which is ideal if you are there for a long time and want to grab a bite somewhere in the middle of your day.

Awesome, always clean, well run and has great exhibits. It hasn't changed at all, in many years. And although that is a good thing, I also wish as a local, that I could go and many new things each time.

It was very busy when I visited but the staff were very nice and the place was well organized. I did not wait in a single line after I got inside. Artifacts were well organized and there was a wide variety of things displayed. Did not lose interest and did not get to see everything in one visit.
