ROM exhibit cases from 1914

Era: 

  • 1905 - 1914
  • display room in Waterloo Museum

    Using ROM cases for a display in a sister institution.

Like many museums across Ontario, the Waterloo Region Museum in Kitchener has benefitted from gifts from the Royal Ontario Museum - particularly when it has upgraded exhibit cases during past renovations.

The Waterloo Region Museum has several oak exhibit cases, with brass fittings, that we believe were part of the original 1914 exhibit installations at the ROM.

This photo shows an exhibit at the Waterloo Region Museum, in place from the mid 1990s through 2008, that re-created a turn of the last century museum - complete with ROM exhibit cases containing some of the more unusual artifacts from our collection.

Happy anniversary to the ROM!

From our further research, it would appear that these cases date from after 1933
