If you remember from our last #instaROM event (http://www.rom.on.ca/en/blog/instarom) it lasted the entire day and was self guided. Well, I can say that our first try was somewhat of a success. We only had two days to promote the tour but four people came out to take part. Our motivation for these tours is to see how visitors view our collections, displays, exhibitions and the museum through their lenses. We love seeing what people come up with and we hope to offer more of these tours on a regular basis. As an added bonus and to sweeten the pot, we decided to give away one of our new ROM Social Membership: bit.ly/10u5G4C
The theme of the tour matched the theme for #FNLROM last week - Canadian Classics. We toured the Canadiana Gallery and the First Peoples Gallery, making six stops and allowing for lots of time to snap a few Instagram photos! In the end, Paola was the lucky winner of the ROM Social Membership!
See you all this week as we have our second #instaROM tour during #FNLROM. The theme this week is 'God save the Queen', a light hearted take on the Brits and monarchy. The tour will start at 8pm sharp in the European Gallery on level 3. It would be great to have everyone gathered together at 7:50pm so that we can get started! See you all on Friday, until then, keep calm and #instaROM!
