The museum was fantastic! The Viator process was ridiculous. You don't skip the line, you have to present your download so they can scan it and give you a ticket. The site was easy but a waste of time.

There are so many historical artifacts there that I wish I had reserved more time to peruse it all more closely. Would advise visitors to set aside at least 4 -6 hours to go through the museum. Went with my adult daughter.

What a lovely time my sister and I had at the museum. As educators, we toured the Treasure exhibit and was blown away. We learned a lot about the history, and culture of India. The gift shop allowed us to purchase books and cultural artifacts.to use in our classroom with our students. What a wonderful place to learn and explore. Then Johnson Gilrs

So glad that I bought my tickets ahead of time. There was a line out side to get into the building. Then there was another line in the building to purchase tickets. Then the line to get into museum. They should have had scheduled times for the Dale Chihuly exhibit. We did not wait the 3 plus hours in that line. Instead we walk through the entire museum.

The Michael Lee-Chin Crystal

The ROM is almost as renowned for being an architectural showstopper as it is for its cultural holdings. As part of a major project in 2007, the museum enlisted architect Daniel Libeskind to add a bold new wing—an aluminum-and-glass structure that juts out from the older century-old facade. The new wing was well-received, quickly cementing the museum as an architectural icon of Toronto.
