  • An excellent museum. Admittedly we skipped quite a bit as we've seen similar exhibits elsewhere, but the dinosaurs were a must see. The Asian sections were very interesting too.  more »

  • Beautiful museum with a lot of content and things to do for kids and adults. The wildlife photographer of the year by Natural History Museum was awesome. Buying an yearly pass is well worth it..it allows 2 adults and 4 kids. We had fun this March break. The restaurant closes early, would appreciate if they can open till the museum closes otherwise everything was good.
  • Lots of cool and interesting things to discover. Even though it was March Break it wasn't as crazy busy. The cafeteria could be a little bit bigger and better organized. It was way too hot and crowded. There were only 4 cashiers. More seating would be helpful. Also there should be an 'in/out' policy. People should have the freedom to go outside the ROM for a coffee or food of their choice. Other than that, it is a cool place to explore.
