School Visits

Welcome to education at the ROM!

At the ROM, we believe in the power of objects to nurture discovery and inspire wonder!  We connect students to authentic natural specimens and cultural objects to help them better understand and make sense of the people and world around them.  Through guided tours and hands-on labs linked to the Ontario curriculum, our experienced educators use learner-centred and inquiry-based teaching methods to engage your students with the ROM's world-class collection.

Book your school visit today and share the wonder!



Rates are the same for students, teachers, and adult supervisors.  One teacher or adult supervisor is admitted free for every 10 students.
