If you think you need years of experience to be a good photographer… think again! After viewing photos taken by youth in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit at the ROM, you may find yourself itching to start snapping photos.

The Bioblitz experience is educatiional and fun, but for kids it's even more than that, it's a real treasure hunt!
We sat down with CBC’s Matt Galloway to find out exactly what keeps bringing him back to the ROM
Q: Do you visit the museum often?
A: Yes, I have a couple of young kids. We come on a fairly regular basis. Sometimes if there’s a special event, but also sometimes we come just to wander around. It’s a great place to explore—one of the places we go to just spend time in the city. That’s a big thing for our family, to be out and about in Toronto as much as we can.
Inside and outside the ROM on June 15th and 16th Ancient Greece and Rome Family Weekend is in full swing. Our 3rd floor galleries are full of experts - some in period clothing!

One of the greatest experiences of my life occurred when I was just 7 years old. My mom took me for a week-long adventure to Alberta to visit Drumheller and the Badlands.

We’re back. We all had a great trip out west. It’s hard to pick out highlights, as it all seems like highlights to me.
I’ve just come back from Grasslands National Park with the Grand Prize Winner of the Find the Baby Bison contest, Alexander Muth. I’m the lucky ROM employee chosen to accompany him and his family on the trip (actually no luck involved at all, it was an arm wrestling competition and I’m stronger than I look).
