Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
The AGO works to decrease the amount of scents in the building by using unscented cleaning products. AGO staff can assist visitors with MCS by providing information about the times and days when our galleries are less busy. We can also direct you to areas where there are fewer visitors once you are at the AGO and advise you of areas that have been recently painted.
