My first visit to the ROM was in 1996. I came here as a grad student and the ROM was the first on my "must visit" list.
1982 - 2000
My grade five class went to the ROM in order to see early civilizations exhibits. A small group of us wanted to see the swords and armours and so stole away from our class.
After the Planetarium layoffs, some staff found other positions in the ROM. One woman who had been a greeter became a Security Officer.
The Planetarium closes with layoffs. There is a public outcry, but attendance has been falling and the equipment is 25 years old. The Director speaks about it as a "low point".
