The Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry, founded in 2012, is not a traditional museum. It is, however, in the traditional sense of the word “museum,” a place that is sacred to the muses, the muses of poetry in particular. ROMP celebrates the power of poetry in the daily lives of the people. ROMP celebrates the first literary art in the world and its continuing need in the lives of people everywhere.
ROMP is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with tax-exempt status.
