All ROM galleries and exhibitions will be free on Canada Day

If you’re looking for free Canada Day plans, look no further than the Royal Ontario Museum.

The ROM opens for free on Friday, July 1. Visitors will be able to explore all of the museum’s galleries and special exhibits for free.

This includes the new fantastic beasts: The Wonder of Nature, Kore 670 and Commemorative Royal Items. It’s also one of the last chances to see Great Whales: Up Close and Personal, which ends July 3.

Explore the connections between the magical creatures of the wizarding world and the remarkable animals of our natural world, admire one of the most important sculptures of the legendary Greek Acropolis or venture into the underwater world of giants.

In a statement, the ROM said the initiative is part of its commitment to providing the community with greater access to art and culture.

Capacity will be limited and visitors are encouraged to reserve their free tickets online in advance. The ROM will be open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and tickets will be timed.

Canada Day isn’t your only opportunity to see the ROM for free. Until the end of September, the galleries and programs on the ground floor of the museum are free for everyone.

Also, starting July 1, the ROM will be open seven days a week until Labor Day.
