Ian Leaver is a 25-year-old ROM Member with autism who visits the Museum often, touring the exhibitions and spending time with other ROM visitors and staff. Ian's mother, Wendy, says that although Ian does not ask many questions due to his disability, his visits to the ROM have brought out a curiosity she has not seen in him before.

What inspired your first visit to the ROM?

I like Dinosaurs and my sister gave me a Membership.

How would you describe the ROM to a friend who had never visited the Museum before?
