Sponsorship Opportunities

This is an especially historic time for the Royal Ontario Museum, as we embark on our second century in 2014. Our marketing and promotions teams will bring this event to life as we count down to the day, 100 years ago, when the Museum first opened its doors. This will provide an unprecedented opportunity for partners to be recognized on a national and international stage as the eyes of the world will be on the ROM.

Through its programs and world-class collections, the ROM is inspiring the next generation of artists, scientists, researchers and curious minds. We invite visionary partners to work with us to create the Museum of the 21st Century. Learn more about the unique benefits of sponsoring a gallery, program, exhibition or event at the ROM.
