This is an outstanding museum! We came to see the Vikings special exhibition which was well presented with particularly impressive sound design as you could hear audio representative of different aspects of Viking life as you walked around. The other highlight was the collection of dinosaur fossils which are among the best I've seen. Highly recommended if you have some time while visiting Toronto - I would plan at least half a day here.

Went to see the Vikings exhibit. It was interesting as I am a history nerd, but not worth the add-on price I think. The museum as a whole is interesting but not amazing. What really took my breath away was the building itself. It is truly fascinating. Both modern and classic with internal 3d nooks and cranny's. Worth an afternoon stroll for sure.

It's a great place to take your family or even to visit alone. Their special exhibitions are worth the price of the ticket and really educational. I find the staff to be knowledgeable and polite. The attached gift shop is simply splendid and has a souvenir for everyone. My only complaint is the lack of options for restaurants and their prices. The ROM is a full day trip and I think they would benefit from offering less expensive options for food.

CONSIDER SPENDING HOURS HERE. It's worth it. There are a lot of things and to enjoy them you should take your time. A great experience and a history lesson for people of all ages to learn and grasp. I personally really enjoyed the first level the most. The people of ancient times give you an interesting perspective on life. Those people could have never ever in all their brain power imagine their weapons, swords, statues, or even toys to be displayed thousands of years after them for other people. Makes you think in a thousand plus years if people will do the same to us. Totally recommend it!
