Royal Ontario Museum

Canada’s largest museum, with more than five million objects, the Royal Ontario Museum, or ROM, was created in 1912 with the ambitious dual mandate of showcasing human civilization and the natural world. Galleries of archeology, science, art, and nature display significant collections of Chinese treasures, ornate mummy cases, and perennially popular dinosaur skeletons.
