“The ROM Sleepover was a lot of fun. I got to know some other kids my age and learned a lot. My favourite part was staying up until midnight and making a model of a dinosaur. I felt dinosaur bones and real stuffed animals like a beaver, a raccoon, an owl and a blue jay. Another favourite part was getting to feel a real live lizard and a live snake! I also tried on some costumes and wore chain mail. At first I didn’t want to go, but it ended up being a great time and a lot of fun. You should go too!”

“The VIEWS event was really memorable. Not only did we share some fantastic father-daughter time, but we also made great connections and friends with other VIEWS families. There were many things to explore and the staff did an excellent job providing tactile opportunities for the group. Thank you, VIEWS, for organizing an amazing venue to connect while learning and having fun.”
- Jonathan, Julia’s father
