ROM Canada

Canada’s heritage is one of diverse cultures and deep roots, originally defined by Aboriginal cultures and subsequently by English and French arrivals, and later by a mosaic of international immigration. ROM Canada is unique, focusing on culture and nature, while encouraging interpretations of Canada based on the convergence of both. Explore the development of Canadian identity and Canadian-ness in the context of place and climate through centuries of changing technologies and symbols.
ROM Canada explores our culture and nature.
