The ROM is an essential destination for understanding the Earth and our Solar System. Meteorites, rocks, precious minerals and gems contribute to one of the finest museum collections on display anywhere. In total, over 4.5 billion years of history are represented at the ROM in almost 3,000 exceptional specimens originating from all over the Earth, from the Moon… and beyond.

After weeks of planning Lexie and I hosted our first #emptyROM tour this morning! We loved the MET's version and thought it would be a great way to show our community what it is like to come to work early in the morning everyday!

Rock around the ROM as you examine minerals, rocks and meteorites in the museum’s Teck Suite of Galleries: Earth’s Treasures, the ROM’s special exhibition Pompeii: In the Shadow of the Volcano and beyond. What’s the hardest substance on earth? Do gems have healing properties? How can you identify a space rock? And where do fossils fit in the picture? Two weeks at the School of Rocks and you’ll graduate with flying colours.
