What makes this tour special

Discover the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) highlights - Canada's largest and most important museum with over 6 million items displayed in 40 galleries on this fascinating private guided tour. The museum's collection array covers everything from natural history (fossils, dinosaurs, minerals, and meteorites) to Canadian history, as well as art and archaeology from around the world such as China, Africa, and Europe. 

Your tour guide will adjust the itinerary according to your interests, and on your private tour, you will get the opportunity to:

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is a must-see attraction on any visit to Toronto with so many collections that everyone will find something to their interest!

The ROM was founded in 1912 and its buildings are a combination of historic and eclectic designs: Italian Renaissance, Romanesque, glorious Byzantine mosaics, Neo-Gothic - and most recently the controversial Michael Lee-Chin "Crystal" - the multi-million dollar extension to the museum that replaced the traditional Queen Elizabeth II Terrace Galleries. 

You will embark on a mesmerising and visually compelling journey through time and world history, from an incredible fossil collection of over 150,000 specimens and an awe-inspiring dinosaur display, which are complemented by vast collections detailing historic and long-lost civilisations from China, Egypt, Rome, Greece, and the Byzantium / Ottoman Empire.
