President’s Choice School Entrance. Doors open at 4:30 PM.

ROM’s popular ID Clinics are a great way to identify your mysterious found treasures, all while engaging with ROM staff and volunteers. Bring your rocks, minerals, gems, and fossils and ROM experts will help identify them for you. Clinics are free with RSVP.

To ensure clinic time for all visitors, please limit your specimens to no more than 5 per visitor. 

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.
