Free Access to Museums and Galleries via the Toronto Public Library

According to the National Post the Toronto Public Library will soon be providing free access to museums and galleries.
There are a limited number of passes each week, but any holder of an adult library card can take part – although they may have to reserve.

MAP, as the pass is called, will provide individuals and families with free admission to one of 10 Toronto cultural institutions.

They are:

-the Art Gallery of Ontario

-the Royal Ontario Musuem

-the Bata Shoe Museum

-the Gardiner Museum or Ceramics

-Black Creek Pioneer Village

-the Textile Museum of Canada

-the Toronto Historic Museums

-the Museum of Inuit Art

-the Ontario Science Centre

-Casa Loma.

The program comes at no cost to the city because it is sponsored by Sun Life Financial, which covers printing and promotional costs, and the museums and galleries involved.
