The ROM wants to show you and the kids how scary spiders are. Not.
Alumni Family Day at the ROM
On a tour exclusively curated for U of T alumni, over 200 alumni families met almost 400 spiders – both live and preserved. They found out why spiders aren’t that scary and what awesome things they can do. Their up-close and personal day with creepy-crawlies included:
- A special arachnid talk with Doug Currie, U of T biology professor and curator of the ROM exhibit, “Spiders: Fear & Fascination”
- Small-group, guided tours of the exhibit
- A web-weaving activity
- A build-your-own spider activity
