Explore Museums in Toronto
If you didn’t schedule an itinerary for your trip to Toronto, museums are a great jumping-off point; they allow you to explore different facets of the city in one convenient location. Whether it is art, architecture, natural history or even textiles, museums are plentiful in Canada’s largest city. The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is one of the world’s foremost museums of natural history and world cultures. With approximately 6 million objects in the ROM, you could easily spend your entire trip here. The Textile Museum of Canada showcases basketry, beadwork, carpets, garments and traditional fabrics from a variety of cultures. Toronto also has some offbeat museums such as the Bata Shoe Museum, which displays about 1,000 items of footwear at any time, and the Hockey Hall of Fame, which offers quirky displays like a replica dressing room and rink zone, enormous statues and many artifacts.
