  • There was a lot of room and I did not feel claustrophobic compared to other museums I've been. It is pretty linear but gives you the chance to follow your own path.

  • We had a great experience at the ROM taking our 5 year-old for the first time! We took advantage of a promotion in March and were able to purchase advance tickets at a discounted “distance” rate because we were travelling from out of town! The exhibits were great, we also checked out the special Whale showcase. Food was available on site which was the only aspect that had a small wait time. Otherwise, it was a wonderful day, we felt safe and secure, and we got to see so many cool artifacts and exhibits! 🦕🦖
  • I loved this museum, one of the most diverse collections of artifacts and knowledge. They have specific QR codes if you wanna learn about the history of different prices in majority of the museum. They have a lot of information about the history of different country’s, the first nations as well as the animals. It was an amazing experience. I would suggest spending at the very least 3-4 hours to get through everything and learn about everything. Definitely recommend!
  • Loved the overall experience at the ROM. Spent 3-4 hours there. There were only two things. First: I wish some exhibits were better curated. Definitely had quite a few moments that made me go "what is this item, where is the description, oh the description doesn't tell me anything, I have to google it". Second: The China exhibit got a little tone deaf at times. I did pay extra to get into the great whale special exhibit and I would say it was very worth it. It was the right combination of being informative and interesting. Would definitely try to go again during off peak hours and when they have new special exhibits.
  • I felt it was a great experience, brought my young children who probably can't yet appreciate all the displays, however it still held their attention. Getting in was a breeze, it was relatively busy for a weekday. An overall great experience. What would have been nice is if there were a few more sitting areas or rest area where you could give the kids a snack. I believe there was only an area in the basement.
  • The museum is very rich in collection. I specially like the section displaying different types of stone, minerals and crystals. I've never seen such a display before. Attached one photo but it has much more than this image. One single visit is not sufficient to explore every item. I'll definitely visit once more. There was an offer on Presto user. I got 20% discount on ticket. The offer is ending soon.
