A big apology to everyone who was following our Live Blog of David Hockney in conversation iwth Charlie Scheips.  We experienced some technical difficulties that evening, but are back up and running!

We did catch the whole conversation on tape and will make it up to you with a Vlog of everything you missed.  Coming soon!

I love sharing the cool secrets of the ROM with visitors, so it really made my day when our Name the Queen Bee Contest winner Kaitlyn visited the ROM with her mom and her brother Kynan (who also happened to be our third place winner). I got to show them around the Keenan Family Gallery of Hands-on Biodiversity and Life in Crisis: Schad Gallery of Biodiversity, as well as introduce them to a few special friends of mine who live behind-the-scenes at the ROM.

By Brian Boyle, ROM Senior Photgrapher.

In celebration of Dinomania! this weekend, we wanted to share details about a new technique we are experimenting with in the photo studio.  Recently, I began to explore how the ROM could use emerging technologies to provide virtual tours of our galleries (if you haven’t already heard about the Google Art Project, take a look!)

Imagine you were a Pipistrelle Bat living in the ROM’s bat cave and one night, when all the lights went out, you snuck out of the cave to explore the wonderful galleries of the Museum. What would you want to see? Where would you go first?

Need a little help boosting your imagination? Check out the ROM’s very first children’s book – Burton and Isabelle Pipistrelle: Out of the Bat Cave.

To educate and foster appreciation for these much-loved colourful insects, the City of Toronto, in partnership with the ROM and Livegreen Toronto, has published a new book, Butterflies of Toronto: A Guide to their Remarkable World. With hundreds of full-colour photographs, this new publication shares the local history of butterflies and details on where they live in Toronto. It is part of a Biodiversity Series being produced by the City to commemorate the Year of Biodiversity 2010.

I found a blackened rock that I think might be a meteorite. How can I tell for sure?

We love picnicking outside in the summer but in August and September our meals are inevitably cut short because of wasps. What are they and what can we do about them?
