"Great Whales: Up Close and Personal":
In 2017, the ROM shared the incredible journey of Blue, ROM’s beloved blue whale in "Out of the Depths: The Blue Whale Story". The highly successful ROM-original exhibition told the story of nine blue whales that died tragically in the Gulf of St. Lawrence in 2014, and the unprecedented opportunity for research and conservation it presented. Fast forward four years and the museum returns to the depths. Showcasing the ROM’s commitment to Canada’s iconic North Atlantic whales, this exhibition takes the story further and features Blue alongside two new skeletons: the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale and the deep-diving sperm whale. With multi-sensory interactive and immersive experiences, Great Whales compares these three unique giants, from their size and diet to their intelligence and evolution, while highlighting the extensive ongoing research and conservation efforts being undertaken to save these mammals from extinction. The ROM invites you to dive back in and discover these incredible great whales of Canada's east coast, their complex relationships with humans, and what we can do to save them.
