Out of the Depths: The Blue Whale Story

March 11 – September 4, 2017

Out of the Depths: The Blue Whale Story is a ROM original exhibition that retells the tragic story of 2014 and the unprecedented opportunity for research and conservation that resulted.

Come face to face with the enormous 80 foot skeleton of Blue, and discover the mind-blowing biology of blue whales; the humongous size of their heart, their unusual feeding behaviour, how they communicate and their evolution from land to sea.

Find out how the ROM is studying their DNA to unlock some of the mysteries surrounding these large but elusive creatures, and gain insight into the global decline of the blue whale population and what is being done to protect the world’s largest animal.

Tickets for this exhibit do not include The Wildlife Photography of the Year exhibition.


Location: Royal Ontario Museum
