Toronto’s most popular museum
The ROM is a world class museum, and one of Toronto’s most popular attractions. Since its grand re-opening in 2007, the Royal Ontario Museum has attracted a vast and steady flow of visitors every day. Many come to look at the building’s rather odd hybrid structure. The ROM is located on one of the most fashionable corners in Toronto and next to the University of Toronto.
