  • Friday Night Live at the ROM is the best idea ever, since Disneyland. The experience of going to a museum that turns into a night club can certainly compete with Las Vegas 3+ storey clubs. This is a 5 level club with different themed nights. The secret lounge on the top floor is where a jazz band plays on occasion, and 2 other floors with different music play while discovering the different collections of the anthropology, natural history and geology, etc areas are on different floors while slightly boozed. It makes the idea of going to a museum that much cooler. Highly recommend it!
  • I love the permanent exhibits. They're well done and always lets me escape a bad day. I do have membership so go whenever I feel like and never wait in line. I am happy to pay the membership because it supports the museum in its endeavours. Conveniently accessible by public transit and also reasonably accessible within. Love the architecture and all that fun stuff. Worth the visit if you're looking for something to do. The Philosopher's Walk is also a lovely place to check out. Would avoid going weekends when it's most frequented by families and screaming kids. They have a cheap evenings day or something that would be worth going to check out and get some quiet "you time".
  • Fantastic exibits. You will need time to see most of it. The information provided was very detailed. The staff was very informative. I really liked the staff letting us feel the animal pelts. That was amazing and they provided great information on what we were seeing and feeling.
  • The ROM is AWESOME!!!! Not only it is the biggest museum in Canada, it is also one of the most beautiful, well organized and interesting museum in the world!!! With every penny! The guided tour through the highlights of the museum is excellent and gives you an opportunity to choose what you'll want to see after the short tour ends (it takes around 45 minutes). The museum is wright in front of the subway and is now presenting a new exhibition called the third gender, very interesting and worth taking your time with!
  • Had multiple areas covered (natural science, historical, cultural, etc.) and did well covering each one! Outside architecture was very impressive as well. Well worth admission if you have time to explore all exhibits.
