ROM is Canada's biggest natural-history museum and one of the largest museums in North America.

Galleries and exhibits
------------------

- The permanent collection features more than six million specimens and artifacts, divided between two main galleries: the Natural History Galleries (all on the 2nd floor) and the World Culture Galleries (on the 1st, 3rd and 4th floors).

- The Chinese temple sculptures, Gallery of Korean Art, and costumes and textile collections are some of the best in the world.

- The remarkable First Peoples Art and Culture gallery provides insight into the works of art and cultural heritage of Canada’s indigenous people from precolonial times to the present. The 1000-piece collection includes ceremonial clothing, birch-bark canoes, fine art and more. -

- Dinosaur Gallery: With hundreds of specimens to discover, kids can peruse everything from unusual dinosaur specimens to fossilized plants. Little paleontologists can also check out the more recently discovered dino Wendiceratops

Each year the ROM hosts a variety of big temporary exhibits from around the world (special exhibit surcharges apply).

Activities for kids
----------
- WonderWorks | Level 2:
ROM welcomes families to a reimagined play-based learning space — a space that invites young children to experiment and connect with the Museum in a playful, interactive, and fun environment.

- WonderWorks primarily serves families with children 3 to 8 years old; however, all are welcome to play, explore, and learn. Gallery staff and volunteers are available to facilitate experiences in the space, ensuring a strong connection between play, learning, and collections in the Museum.

- Located on Level 2, WonderWorks is a foundational space within the Museum's hands-on galleries, which also includes the Bat Cave and the Patrick and Barbara Keenan Family Gallery of Hands-On Biodiversity. Stroller parking is available, but may be restricted during periods of high visitation. Children under the age of 12 visiting the gallery must be accompanied by an adult.

-Younger visitors (and their parents) will appreciate the two interactive galleries at the ROM: the Discovery Gallery and the Family Gallery of Hands-on Biodiversity.

- Kids can touch shark skulls and beaver pelts, dig for dinosaur bones and walk through bat caves.

- The cedar crest totem poles carved by Indigenous tribes in British Columbia are also wonderful.

- Imaginative play has children hiding in foxholes and dressing up in clothing from other eras that has been sourced from across the globe. Facilitators are on hand to introduce youngsters to what's on offer and answer the many questions they’re sure to have.
