Family Fun Weekends

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) kicks off its Family Fun Weekends on April 13, 2013. Six exciting themed weekends exploring ideas from the ancient world to biodiversity offer families a variety of activities that run until June 10, 2013. The entire family will enjoy interactive demonstrations and performances, meeting archaeologists, getting up close to museum objects not normally on display, making cool crafts for home and more! Activities run from 11 am to 4 pm are included with general Museum admission.

Meet archaeologists and find out what they do to make their discoveries. Then get up close with objects usually hidden away in the museum’s vaults. Try your hand at being an archaeologist as you learn some of the skills they use in the field. Meet people who do “experimental” archaeology by trying to do things the way they were done in the past, and “living history” re-enactors of the Viking era who try to understand the past by living it.

Location: Royal Ontario Museum — 100 Queen’s Park
