Access conditions and requirements

The Royal Ontario Museum Archives is open to the public each weekday. There is no admission charge.

The Archives is located in the Main Library, on the main floor of the ROM. Access is via the ROM main entrance on Bloor Street. Ask at the Admissions Desk for a library pass and directions to the Main Library.

Accessibility

The main entrance features automatic sliding doors and is located on Bloor Street entering the Michael Lee Chin Crystal. The ROM’s entrance is stair-free and the main foyer is gradually sloped for smooth entry. All Museum levels are accessible by elevators and chair lifts. The Museum’s Visitor Guide & Floor Plan is available at the admission desk.

Taxis and other vehicles may use the offloading layby on either Bloor Street West or Queen’s Park to drop off and pick-up visitors with disabilities. A single, gently-sloped surface in textured granite and concrete leads from the Bloor Street layby to all three new entrances. Parking is not permitted in these lanes.
