With summer ending soon, it is something you’ll want to cherish before it is gone.  There is still much to warm up with at the Royal Ontario Museum this week.

Take a ROM walk through Cabbagetown North this Wednesday. Just look for the purple ROMwalks Umbrella at the Northeast corner of Parliament and Winchester Streets at 6pm.

We are absolutely LOVING all the memes you guys are sending in for #ROMmeme. It's a beautiful mixture of pop culture references, natural history and ancient world cultures. The perfect trifecta, really.

Here's a selection from the last two weeks featuring many a reference to Mean Girls and, of course, cats.

Thank you for submitting your hilarious takes on the prairie dogs meme. We essentially spent the entire week laughing at the entries below.

We'll share next week's image on Monday, so stay tuned!

We love seeing the ROM through your eyes. Luckily we get to do this by speaking with you on social media and hearing about your visits to the Museum. We also get to marvel at the awesome photos you take and share with us. And now, we’re going to take it one step further: we want to see the collection through your eyes.

Every Monday in August we’ll share an object from the collection with you. You have the week to turn it into a fun meme/gif and then we’ll share the best ones on Friday.
