The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) was founded in 1914 and features art, culture, and nature from all over the world. Its collection has more than 13 million artworks, cultural objects, and natural history specimens and is the largest museum in Canada. For students, the appeal is simple: hands-on, experiential activities. For teachers the single entrance for all education trips is an appealing feature. Each class is assigned a space for eating so that students can bring their lunches with them and keep costs low. Students are able to interact with and handle specimens, if they are along for a guided program.

Lennox and is over 100 years old.
The Art Gallery of Ontario — or the AGO— is in Baldwin Village, in west downtown Toronto. The gallery was initially named the Art Museum of Toronto, and underwent several name changes before arriving at its current title in 1966. Its collection of artwork is one of the largest in North America. There are over 100,000 pieces! For field trips, the AGO has pretty strict requirements for students- chaperone ratios vary based on the students’ ages. The museum does provide educational tours with a focus on six different strategies, including critical thinking and problem solving strategies, and global citizenship.
