DESCRIPTION

The Royal Ontario Museum is among the world’s leading museums of natural history, and of world cultures. Indeed, in combining a universal museum of cultures with that of natural history, the ROM offers an unusual breadth of experience to visitors and scholars from around the world. We realize more acutely now that nature and humanity are intertwined, and the ROM offers many examples in its collections and programs of these fundamental relationships.

It is the ROM’s mission to engage the public in exploration of cultural change and to serve as an advocate for science in the study of nature. Our collections and research serve as the basis for programs ranging from formal student education courses to public debates, lectures, symposia, films, tours, publications, travel and family activities. The museum aims to host and produce programs of intellectual depth and social relevance on both sides of its mandate, including unique ROM exhibitions and works of a collaborative nature. Through the ROM’s Institute for Contemporary Culture, the museum also explores current issues through works of art and programs in many media.
