Ultimate Dinosaurs Sneak Peek: Giants From Gondwana
By Ian Morrison, Technician, Vertebrate Palaeontology
Spring has Sprung at the ROM!
Spring has sprung at the ROM, and as the season suggests, there are plenty of new things popping up around the Museum.
Canada’s Oceans and YOU: The Rising Sea (Part 1)
Packing and transporting over 50 specimens from the ROM to the Direct Energy Centre at the Exhibition grounds for the Canada’s Oceans and You: An Interactive Exhibition at the Green Living Show is not a simple task. Days of preparation happen: models are placed delicately in or on packing material, real taxidermy specimens must be cleaned and crated, and all are loaded neatly into trucks.
Ultimate Dinos Sneak Peek: Dinos in the Big City
We returned from the field in Patagonia to the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires. At about 13 million people in the metro area, BA is the largest city in the country, and third largest in modern Gondwana (behind Sao Paulo and Cairo). There are dinosaurs in Buenos Aires, but only in museums, as the fossils were found in other parts of the country- mostly Patagonia. We spent one day at the Natural Science Museum, or MACN, on the edge of Palermo.

Winter Visitors in Hands-on Biodiversity
It’s that time of year! ROM for the Holidays is finally here, and we’ve been hard at work in the Keenan Family Gallery of Hands-on Biodiversity (HOB for short) getting some new hands-on activities ready to go.
First up is the brand-new, never-before-seen touch table that we put together in honour of our lost baby bison.
