Yesterday, we introduced you to, Dr. ROMulous, the host of the ROM’s March Break activitity, The Game Show at the End of the World. Not to leave you in the dark, we are pleased to give you the back story on our superhero of science and history!
Dr. ROMulous was born in the back seat of his parent’s broken down lollipop orange Volkswagen.
Having laid awake for nights on end, the fabulous Dr. ROMulous and the ROM team have devised a new game show for March Break at the ROM (March 10 – 18). Inspired by Maya: Secrets of their Ancient World and Dr. ROMulous’s recent trip to Palenque, Mexico, The Game Show at the End of the World is a contest that will challenge your wits and tickle your funny bone!
