ROM: Free Family Day Event!

The ROM recently announced their Family Day Weekend offerings, which include free (!) admission to all guests on February 19th! This special event coincides with the return of the ROM’s original exhibit “Zuul,” featuring a remarkably well-preserved ankylosaur. This exhibit will only be back in Toronto for a few weeks, so it’s a great opportunity to experience this one-of-a-kind display. Along with Zuul, the ROM will be presenting exciting activities, engaging workshops, and diverse exhibitions. Activities are included with the free admission, making this an ideal way to explore art, culture, and nature.
