  • It is absolutely amazing, you can spend a whole day in the museum. It has different sections of historical ages from all over the world. You can see many things from different civilizations. I loved the geology part. You can find brilliant minerals and stones. It is one of the best museum I have ever seen. Highly recommended to visit.
  • The ROM is World Class, all the way! Better then any of the Smithsonian in Washington DC. It is really a natural history and art & culture museum rolled into one! I only spent a few hours here, however you could come here for days and still be able to take in everything. I would recommend visiting the museum website in advance and prioritize what collections you want to see. Some rooms are going to be more busy then others based on the content. Lots of child friendly exhibits, ask the curators as to which ones are best suited for children. I bought the city pass in advance. NOTE: For the city pass the museum does require you to pick a day of visitation in advance. The city pass made it easy to access the museum. I recommend a visit to the geology collection. Some of the biggest geodes I have ever seen!
