In an effort to open its doors to more regular visitors, the Art Gallery of Ontario has announced it will be offering free admission to visitors under 25 years of age. For those of us who are forever young and a tad older, the AGO is now offering a new annual pass for the low price for $35.
Framed by the organization as a one-year experiment, the scheme aims to better connect with and understand the AGO’s broader audience. The new changes are put into effect on May 25, 2019 and will be valid until May 25, 2020.
