Explore Museum Objects
ScopifyROM is the world’s first ScopifyTM smartphone app. It puts digital tools similar to those used by curators and scientists into your hands. Interact with selected museum objects in ways never before possible as you investigate, make discoveries and reveal the larger story each object represents: a story about life, history, or the planet. At the ROM, launch the app on your device and look for QR codes near objects or look in the app itself to find out which Museum objects are ready for you to put your Scopifying talents to work. Follow instructions on the screen to aim the scope at the QR code and unlock the discoveries for each object.
