3. Royal Ontario Museum

The ROM located at 100 Queens Park in Toronto is the city's number one museum. For decades the ROM has awed people from around the world, especially when Pharaoh Tutankhamen’s gold mask and funerary goods were on display. Currently, the most popular exhibition is the Viking exhibition, which runs until April 2, 2018. Learn about the Vikings’ settlement in Newfoundland and Labrador, see their horde, and learn about life of the Vikings and Norse people.

Fashionistas will love how Christian Dior’s life and work is on display until March 18, 2018. See how Dior helped to revolutionize Parisian couture (and so did Coco Chanel).

There are also permanent galleries and collections ranging from Canadian history to fossils and evolution to ancient cultures and more. The diversity of learning and diversity of attractions here will leave you learning for days. Pace yourself. It’s impossible to see everything in the ROM at one time or even if you went for a week.

The ROM is also heavily involved in conservation work. The museum is a work of architectural beauty, as is the Art Gallery of Ontario. The ROM is open 10 am to 5:30 pm every day but Christmas Day. Prices are subject to change so look up pricing at rom.on.ca and be sure to pay in Canadian money if you’re paying there. For the Vikings and Dior exhibitions, you must pre-order tickets.
