Put on your detective hat and join us as we search out hidden facts and sneaky fictions using the ROM’s galleries and your own experiments. Find out if bats are blind, if pterosaurs are dinosaurs, and if there’s only one wall of China. Learn to detect forgeries of ancient Egyptian art and how to tell the difference between Fool’s Gold and the real thing. Debunk bad science and cast off false histories, then make your own collection of stories and objects and see who can guess whether it’s fact of fiction?!
