A Moon Walk at the ROM

Posted: May 4, 2012 - 15:57 , by admin

It’s an elite group of people that have walked on the moon, but this weekend you will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share the experience with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin (or at least the image of them – Neil is reflected in Buzz’s space helmet).  Space Weekend, May 5 – 6 only, is shaping up to be out of this world!

Inside the display’s floor window is a real moon specimen.  For your chance to walk on the moon, follow the moon footprints up to the  Teck Suite of Galleries: Earth’s Treasures and share your pictures with us on twitter at #ROMSpace.

A special thank you to the masterminds behind the spectacular interactive moon display!
