Spectacular architecture. The dinosaurs area is fantastic. I love every piece of art in this museum. Totally worth a visit or even more. Great place to take kids, school groups and family. The atmosphere is magical and takes your imagination away.

They have a great kids section! My son loved digging for dinosaur bones & playing with blocks. The bat cave was great. The dinosaurs were amazing. Worth the visit! Just make sure you go early & are able to stay the whole day. There's lots to see.

The ROM is a city landmark. You can't say you know Toronto until you have visited both the AGO and the ROM. The ROM has a play area for small children, and plenty of exhibits. Don't go there and spend 2 hours. This is a venue that needs 4 hours minimum to get through all the floors. The ROM also has night events and special adult only events. It's an all age appropriate spot to bring people. Plus DINOSAURS! There are also special exhibits that are brought in every once in awhile, right now it's the Whale exhibit.

Whether you like history or not, it is a really good place. One suggestion is that you must not go with the museum highlights tour as it is very short and a waste of time. They have artefacts from multiple time periods and countries which are so well maintained it is as if it was made yesterday. They have many fossils of many animals. They have ensured that even the minute details are accurate. However, the funny part is they have couple of bridge networks which connect the places and few lead to nothing but walls 😂 . But it is still very informative and would definitely recommend this to anyone of any age. Five stars for ROM!!!!

Full of beautiful & interesting stuff from different cultures. The museum is a lot larger than I expected it to be. My wife & I didn't plan that it would take such a long time to go through it all & had to skip some sections. Would love to go back with more time on my hands. I felt that the ticket was also very fairly priced. Overall, a great experience.
