Programs

Don’t just come to the ROM - experience your Museum!

Want more ROM? Go beyond artifacts and experience the ROM with special events and programming for those who want to know more. Each of the ROM’s Centres for Discovery focuses specifically on what interests you. Engage in discussions with academics and enthusiasts at a variety of symposia. Go behind the scenes and ask questions at Curator’s Corner, where ROM curators and researchers share their adventures from around the world. Fascinating ROM lectures by subject matter experts are sure to feed your curiosity about our planet – from nature and science to world cultures.

Mark your calendars and join us May 2014 for a new season of ROM Friday Night Live, where events after dark mix culture and nightlife to create a whole new, energized downtown Toronto experience.
