About the Exhibition
Millions of years ago, lands that were once united were torn apart.
Dinosaurs were carried in different directions, passengers on moving continents.
An incredible array of dinosaur diversity began to emerge in the southern hemisphere, in the ancient land of Gondwana.
The land masses that would form modern-day Africa, Madagascar and South America began to take shape, and were home to the largest and most unusual dinosaurs to have ever roamed the earth.
Now, for the first time in North America, audiences will meet a new breed of beast in the ROM's landmark exhibition Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana.
An extraordinary opportunity to experience dinosaurs you've never seen before, in ways you've never imagined.
Not only will you see new dinosaurs in the exhibition, you'll experience them in new ways through augmented reality (AR).
Three AR stations in the exhibition allow you to experience dinosaurs in surprising ways, including virtually fleshing out a dinosaur skeleton.
If you have an iPhone or iPad* mobile digital device, download our ROM Ultimate Dinosaurs app and bring it with you to the ROM, or use the iPads provided in the exhibition.
You can also experience AR on select advertising for the exhibition. Look for ROM transit shelter ads around the GTA and other materials that include AR instructions.
* Works best with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3. Also compatible with iPhone 3GS.

In addition to augmented reality, the exhibition features a range of interactive experiences that both adults and children will love.
Using body-scanning technology, two giant digital walls show dinosaurs from the northern AND southern hemispheres that react to visitors' movements as they approach.
Multi-user Interactive Game
Visitors can digitally reassemble the continents into the single land mass of Gondwana through iPad stations. Win the game and reveal key information to understanding the effects of continental drift on dinosaur evolution.
Visitors can explore evolutionary and geological stories by ‘scrubbing’ a virtual timeline at this iPad station.
