With its mummified cat, moustached bat and the museum’s most famous dinosaur, this souvenir sheet makes a perfect philatelic item  for museum lovers. Canada’s “Indiana Jones” – Charles T. Currelly – helped found the Royal Ontario Museum, which opened its doors in 1914. A century later, the ROM has become a globally respected exhibition of world cultures and natural history.
