Things are heating up at the AGO this month.
Not only is the highly-anticipated Infinity Mirrored Room, Let’s Survive Together, officially opening to the general public, the gallery just announced it will be offering free admission to visitors 25 and under.
Starting on May 25, those 25 and under will be able to visit the gallery free of charge — all year, anytime.
“The new admission rates are a game-changer that will open the Gallery’s doors wider than ever before,” said Stephan Jost, AGO’s Michael and Sonja Koerner Director, and CEO.
“Art is essential, and we’re making it easier for everyone to make it a part of their everyday lives.”

While visitors over 25 won’t be able to visit for free, the AGO will be offering a brand new ‘Annual Pass‘ that provides unlimited admission for a year for only $35.
Considering general admission for one day is currently $19.50 for an adult, this is an incredible deal.
The new annual pass will also come into effect on May 25, and advance sales will begin on May 9 at 10:30 am on the AGO website, and by phone at (416) 979-6648.
Additionally, the AGO is celebrating this landmark initiative with the launch of AGO All Hours, an unmissable event happening three times a year.
AGO All Hours runs from morning to night, and invites visitors to participate in “unconventional experiences” featuring local artists and community partners. This includes special programs, art installations and art making activities to pop-up bars, marquee performances and much more.
According to the Gallery, All Hours has the vibe of a Toronto block party welcoming all ages all day, from 10:30 am to 1 am on May 25.
