ROM Launches the Immortal Membership

Unique contest will award five memberships for a lifetime, and beyond.


TORONTO, January 9, 2023 – Become a member. Become Immortal. ROM, one of the world’s foremost cultural institutions, today announces a contest awarding unique lifetime memberships that will live on beyond the member. In April 2023, the Museum will complete a draw to grant the Immortal Membership to five lucky winners. This remarkable prize will provide lifetime access to ROM and an extraordinary heirloom, a membership that can be passed on to the next generation, after the initial holder passes on.

Members are essential to the Museum’s story and mission, and the Immortal Membership contest celebrates that vital connection.

Each Immortal Membership will include a distinctive one-of-a-kind membership “card” – an original, hand-made display piece containing a genuine trilobite fossil. These unique specimens from an entirely extinct group of marine invertebrates are approximately 450 million years old, and will be delivered in a handsome wooden crate worthy of housing a rare and significant object.

All new and existing ROM members will automatically be entered in the Immortal Membership draw. The contest closes on March 31, 2023 - full details and information about no purchase entry are available here. To learn more about purchasing or gifting a ROM Membership – providing unlimited annual access to 4 billion years of the beauty and wonder in ROM’s collections and exhibitions - please visit the Museum’s Membership page.
