Who we are

Discover the Heart of the Royal Ontario Museum

Founded in 1984 by a small group of passionate donors, the Royal Patrons Circle now boasts a diverse community of over 850 individual and corporate members committed to the ROM’s mission to build community by nurturing discovery and inspiring wonder.

RPC members are avid life-long learners, eager to find themselves at the heart of the Museum with exclusive access to ROM exhibitions, galleries, curators and collections. 

With their annual philanthropic gift, RPC Members are supporting the ROM’s highest priorities and ensuring public access to the ROM’s galleries, exhibitions and programming for generations to come.
