CIBC Discovery Gallery | Level 2

A dedicated kids' zone for learning fun.

Bring your young ones and enter a world of activity and learning, all in a dedicated gallery that's safe and fun. Drawing on the ROM's collections and with trained facilitators close by, curious young minds journey through three themed and interactive areas filled with touchable artifacts and specimens. Try on costumes, dig for dinosaur bones, and examine specimens such as fossils and meteorites. Pre-schoolers have their own special area, too, with puzzles, toys and costumes to try on.
