ROM ID Clinics are a great way to engage with ROM staff and volunteers to help identify your specimens.  

Visitors with rocks, minerals, gems, fossils, or suspected meteorites can have them identified at these special ID clinics, run by ROM experts. 

Clinics are free with RSVP. To ensure clinic time for all visitors, participants should bring no more than 5 specimens.  

Please note: no appraisals will be provided, or value ascribed to specimens brought to the ID clinics. ROM does not purchase specimens at these programs. ROM is unable to identify archaeological material as part of these clinics.  

IMPORTANT: ID Clinics run concurrently with ROM Third Tuesday Night Free (TTNF). Anyone attending ID clinics wishing to visit the Museum will be required to re-enter via one of the two main entrances.
