Rated 4.6 out of 5Royal Ontario Museum Star Rating

5 Star Rating The Royal Ontario Museum is a great day trip for all ages. Recently I went with the family to see the Spider and newly found dinosaur exhibit. They also had a gallery of photo's that were 2018 best photography contest winners. The rest of the museum is all the same. It's nice going when they release new gallery's and/or exhibits.

5 Star Rating I've gone to the ROM quite a few times now and I've always had a great experience. There's really something for everyone in this museum, great for kids, families, and adults alike. Any special exhibit I've been to has been interesting and well thought out, but you can always have a great time with just general admission. There are short (free) tours running almost every hour that I recommend if you're not sure where to start. Definitely a great day activity and I love to take friends and family.

4 Star Rating Beautiful museum. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition was very well out together. It's always interesting to read of the pieces contained there. The museum is not open very late in my opinion and I would suggest getting there closer to opening so you can take your time and try to get it all in.

5 Star Rating My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our visit to the museum. The special exhibit on spiders was very interesting and interesting. The Earth's treasures section was a close second. We spent four and a half hours here and still didn't manage to see everything. This is also a great museum for kids as there are a number of interactive exhibits. The day we visited it was open until 7pm which was nice.

5 Star Rating Great museum, with a nice collection. Excellent place to spend a day of learning. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The gift shop has very cool gifts. Check their website to know if they are hosting temporary expositions, because they can be very entertaining too. If the weather is not perfect, a visit to the museum is a great way to save the day!
