Special Exhibits Included with CityPASS
Around 1914: Design in a New Age
Open through March 22, 2015
One hundred years ago, the ROM opened its doors to the public. Europe was plunged into the Great War. This cataclysmic world event marked the end of a social-political system that had existed for centuries and signalled the birth of the modern movement. It changed the way people looked at their lives and viewed their future.
100 Years of Collecting
Open through March 29, 2015
On March 19, 1914, the Duke of Connaught officially opened the doors of the Royal Ontario Museum for the first time. As a memento, he was presented with a beautifully illustrated manuscript, richly decorated with representations of objects on display at the ROM opening day. The manuscript is a prologue to the 100 years of collecting this exhibition celebrates.
Cairo Under Wraps: Early Islamic Textiles
Open through January 25, 2015
Almost 80 precious Early Islamic textiles dating from the 7th to 14th centuries – including rare examples of clothing – are featured in this original exhibition of ROM material. The decoration on these textiles mainly consists of Arabic inscriptions, often invoking Allah and naming the ruler. Many of these items were intended for the royal household. Some of the earliest pieces were collected by C.T. Currelly, the founding director of the Royal Ontario Museum, and are thus especially appropriate to show in our centennial year.
Do you know what lies beneath your feet? Toronto Underfoot takes objects from the ROM's outstanding Ontario archaeology collection and reveals layer upon layer of the rich history of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. Each unique object tells an intriguing story of Toronto’s past, exposing a meaningful connection between the city's remarkable past and exciting present.
