The Royal Ontario Museum

The original wall

The Royal Ontario Museum or ROM as locals call it, is not just for the museum buffs. The outside “shell” is a new addition to the building but the original wall is still visible when you’re inside. Located right near Yorkville (post to come), it is around all the high end shops such as Chanel, Prada, Coach, Sephora, etc. So after a visit to the ROM, the shopping around it is endless, including Queen Street (once again, post to come).

This museum has a wide range of exhibits from Ancient Egypt, Dinosaurs, Animals, Artifacts, and their special exhibit that usually lasts a couple of weeks. I’ve personally seen the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Underwater exhibit that came. There is an added cost to see the special exhibit but if you like what’s there, the money is worth it.

Locals Know Best: On Friday’s the prices are even lower! (I put them in bold)

The prices are:
Adult: $15 $9
Senior: $13.50 $8
Student (15-25 years old): $13.50 $8
Children: (4-14 years old): $12 $6

If you have the City Pass, that I mentioned in the Casa Loma post then the ROM is included in the price.

The ROM also holds lots of events including Friday Night Live @ ROM from April 10 to June 22. And apparently full time post secondary students get in free on Tuesday with a valid ID and student card.

The museum offers inspiration to go to the next attraction … The Toronto Zoo.
