  1. How interesting. Our science museum does sleepovers, but for the kids – not adults.

    • Hi Robin, They usually have sleepovers for children, but this is the first time they are doing it for adults! Cheers, Lori

  2. How awesome! I would love to be part of this event, if only it was closer to home. I love the idea of having a sleepover, really nice.

  3. I’m not sure I’m up for sleeping with a bunch of strangers, but it oddly sounds like a little fun. I’d definitely be interested in seeing the dinosaur exhibits though.

  4. This adult sleepover sounds like a lot of fun. I would go to this if I could and the fact that it is in The Royal Ontario Museum is a plus. Thanks for sharing the information.
