Friends are a variety of affiliate groups within museum membership. With the help of volunteers and ROM curators, each group increases the awareness and understanding of the stories behind the museum's collections. Friends can also make important contributions to the ROM's research, collections and conservation.

Each Friends group offers extras beyond ROM membership including a special newsletter and invitations to programs and events.

With eight Friends groups that span a great spectrum of Arts and Science from around the world, you're bound to find one or more groups that interest you!
