UPDATE: The ROM is not free on Wednesdays night anymore.

The ROM’s Free Access Program – Listings Change
Please note – effective October 27, 2011: In order to significantly lower prices every day of the week for all visitors, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) has discontinued its Wednesday free two-hour period. Resources will be redirected to serve those who require free access most. The ROMCAN program (ROM’s Community Access Network) has increased its free admission provided to marginalized community groups by 50 per cent to 75,000 free admissions.

By discontinuing the Wednesday program, the ROM can now offer greater affordability to all visitors by reducing admission prices every day of the week. Effective immediately, the Museum now offers general admission at more than a third off the previous rates, as well as discounts on feature exhibitions. Adults, seniors, students and families will all benefit through significantly lower every day rates.

The Royal Ontario Museum is among the world’s leading museums of natural history, and of world cultures. Indeed, in combining a universal museum of cultures with that of natural history, the ROM offers an unusual breadth of experience to visitors and scholars from around the world. We realize more acutely now that nature and humanity are intertwined, and the ROM offers many examples in its collections and programs of these fundamental relationships.

It is the ROM’s mission to engage the public in an exploration of cultural change and to serve as an advocate for science in the study of nature. Our collections and research serve as the basis for programs ranging from formal student education courses to public debates, lectures, symposia, films, tours, publications, travel and family activities. The museum aims to host and produce programs of intellectual depth and social relevance on both sides of its mandate, including unique ROM exhibitions and works of a collaborative nature. Through the ROM’s Institute for Contemporary Culture, the museum also explores current issues through works of art and programs in many media.

General admission to the Museum is not free anymore every Wednesdays from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
