Working tirelessly behind the scenes, ROM Conservators help protect our collections from damage and restore objects to their previous splendor. Ok. Maybe we’re generalizing a bit, so we went right to the source and asked Cathy Stewart, Manager of Conservation, a few questions to help uncover what Conservators really do at the ROM.

It was another full house in Samuel Hall/Currelly Gallery on the Wednesday evening March 7 as the ROM History Wars debate centred on the place of French language, culture and people in Canadian society and governance. As the format allows a straw poll of hands up in the air, the measure of the audience was taken at the beginning of the debate and after to see if our speakers had moved anyone on their views of a bilingual Canada.  The results of both votes showed a significant number of people who were and remained undecided.  Not surprising when considering such a complex issue.

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.
