On Saturday May 23, 2015, during ROM Big Weekend: Global Family and in conjunction with the exhibition “Generations,” artist-photographer Annu Matthew set up studio in the ROM galleries to take complimentary family photographs of ROM visitors. After a steady stream of interested parties that lasted all day, a total of 53 families were able to take advantage of the opportunity! Each received a free print, which was selected, edited and printed on the spot, and a digital file was emailed to them.
I am so excited to share with you all of the beautiful events and galleries happening at the ROM this week. There is so much for everyone to enjoy. From dinosaurs to all the fish in the sea, you won’t want to miss the amazing adventures to come from a visit to the Museum.

Last week Archaeological Services Inc. (ASI, @ArchaeologyTO) uncovered a schooner downtown Toronto near the waterfront. In the New World Archaeology lab that I supervise at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM, @ROMtoronto) we discussed the details of the story with excited interest as we worked.
With every week, comes some more exciting events and exhibitions to see. Whether digging up dino fossils or learning about meteorites this week is sure to have something amazing for you to enjoy.
We're ecstatic to announce that @ROMtoronto and our social media team has won a MUSE Award for #FNLROM. This award is presented by the American Alliance of Museums to Museums who use digital media to enhance the Museum experience, engage audiences, and celebrates scholarship, community, innovation, creativity, education and inclusiveness.
With May just a few days away and warmer weather upon us, you can count on an innovative and creative week at the Royal Ontario Museum.
