The Royal Ontario Museum connects people to their world and to each other
Introduction
The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is an essential destination for making sense of the changing natural and cultural worlds. In combining a universal museum of cultures with that of natural history, the ROM offers an unusual breadth of experience to our audiences 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.
