Becoming a Member of the ROM is a great way to ensure you (and your family and friends) get the most out of every Museum experience — while saving you time and money.

Personalized Membership Communications

To increase access to the ROM's vast collections and curatorial expertise, we now have eight areas of focus: Ancient Cultures, Biodiversity,  Contemporary Culture, Canada, Earth & Space, Fossils & Evolution, Textiles & Fashions and World Art & Culture.

Members can receive customized enewsletters based on areas of interest. Let us know what areas are of most interest and we will keep you up-to-date on all the breaking news, events and discoveries in these areas.  Simply update your Member profile.
