Out of the Depths: The Blue Whale Story, an original exhibition by ROM (Royal Ontario Museum), tells the story of nine blue whales that tragically lost their lives in 2014 when they became trapped in ice in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The exhibition invites guests to share in the journey of the scientists who worked with local communities to recover two of the whales, offering an unprecedented opportunity for scientific research on the elusive animals.
SPECIAL NOTE: This exhibition presents themes about blue whale anatomy and includes images of dead whales, which may cause an emotional response for some visitors.
