Friends Groups

Friends are a variety of affiliate groups that span a great spectrum of Arts and Science from around the world.  With the help of volunteers and ROM curators, each group increases the awareness and understanding of the stories behind the ROM's collections. Friends also make important contributions to the ROM's research, collections and conservation.
