No reviews, be the first!

A Toronto visit isn’t complete without a trip to the Royal Ontario Museum—one of the largest museums on the entire continent, full of artifacts from cultures around the globe (six million of them!), dinosaur fossils, and hands-on exhibits. 1,000 of these scientific artifacts comprise a so-called ‘cabinet of curiosities,’ which you can see as you walk along the famous and stunning J. F. Driscoll Family Stair of Wonders.

Seashells, antlers, and historic fingerbowls are also part of this collection—keep an eye out for stuffed Birds of Paradise and a 20-kg (44-lb) hippopotamus jaw, but the true sight is the architecture itself.
