This follows the announcement of the AGO reopening earlier today with news that Toronto is getting an Andy Warhol exhibition this month.
The CN Tower also announced it will be reopening in a matter of weeks.
When the ROM does reopen, there are three exhibits visitors can check out.
Great Whales: Up Close and Personal, focuses on the world of Atlantic Canada's "majestic underwater giants."
The exhibition offers an "up close and personal" opportunity to learn about three species of great whales that swim off the east coast of Canada: the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale, the sperm whale, and the largest animal ever to have existed on earth, the blue whale.
Elias Sime: Tightrope, features the work of acclaimed contemporary Ethiopian artist Elias Sime. This includes "23 intricately woven artworks made with found materials such as motherboards, circuits and electrical parts that deliver timely messages about human connection, ecological sustainability, and the tensions between nature and technology."
Also, The Cloth that Changed the World: India's Painted and Printed Cottons features textiles on display for the first time in 50 years.
