Discounts to Attractions Around the City

Toronto is overflowing with things to see and do — and many attractions offer free or discounted admission.

  • The permanent collection of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is free on Wednesdays from 6 to 8:30 PM (regular prices: $19.50 for adults, $16 for seniors).
  • The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) offers discounted admission ($10 for adults, $9 for seniors) to its permanent collection on Fridays from 4:30 to 8:30 PM (regular prices: $16 for adults, $14.50 for seniors).
  • Save 15% off CN Tower general admission (regular prices: $32 for adults, $28 for seniors) by buying tickets online at least 24 hours in advance. CN Tower also has discounted rates for CAA/AAA and Air Miles members.
  • T.O.TIX, located at Yonge-Dundas Square, sells half-price and discounted theatre tickets, as well as full-price and discounted advance tickets. (Matinee tickets are sold the day before.) Options include theatre, dance, opera, concerts, comedy, sporting events, and more. (Discounts are great, but take our advice: if there’s a show you really want to see, don’t risk missing out — buy regular-price tickets well in advance of your trip.)
  • The Textile Museum of Canada offers pay-what-you-can admission on Wednesdays from 5 to 8 PM (regular prices: $15 for adults, $10 for seniors).
  • The Bata Shoe Museum has pay-what-you-can admission every Thursday from 5 to 8 PM (regular prices: $14 for adults, $12 for seniors).
  • The Gardiner Museum offers half-price admission on Fridays from 4 to 9 PM (regular prices: $12 for adults, $8 for seniors).
  • The CBC Museum is always free (closed on weekends).

Ryerson University’s Ryerson Image Centre is always free (closed on Mondays).
