Thanks to EVERYONE who made it out to Ancient Egypt Weekend @ROMToronto! We had so much fun talking mummies, cats, cat mummies, and so much more!
Much respect to all the ROM curators and educators who came out for the weekend to talk Ancient Egypt with our families and for bringing out of the vaults the Book of the Dead and a “purrrfectly” preserved cat mummy.
If you came on Saturday you probably also saw our film crews wondering around the Museum shooting footage for a documentary called Museum Diaries. It’s gonna be an awesome show to air next year on TVO about life at the ROM. We took part in the Ancient Egypt episode and feature heavily with our programs. Watch for it next year, and you’ll wonder if you’re seeing Kiron Mukherjee or Michael Scott.
