On a blustery day in March 1914, the ROM opened its doors for the very first time. Royal representatives and other dignitaries were joined by thousands of curious members of the public as they flooded into this impressive new edifice. It was a momentous occasion, for the city, the province, and the country.
Now, exactly 100 years later, we are doing it again. We will be throwing open the doors to VIPs, supporters, members, and—of course—the public to kick off a year of celebrations and special events that illustrate the changing ways the ROM connects visitors to their world and to each other.
Here is a sample of the programming, events, and activities you can expect over the next year. Be sure to check our website often as we will be adding more events as the celebrations unfold!
