There’s a massive new exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum.

About 150-tonnes to be more specific.

The ROM’s latest exhibit Out of the Depths: The Blue Whale Story opens on March 11, and showcases a story that was years in the making.

As described by the ROM:

Come face to face with the enormous eighty- 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…ever.

To get you excited, check out these photos for a sneak peak of the massive event.
