The health and safety of our employees, volunteers, visitors and our extended AGO community is always our top priority. It is for this reason, and on the direction of the Government of Ontario, that the AGO closed temporarily on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 5 p.m. We will continue to monitor the situation and look forward to welcoming visitors to the AGO again.
Now more than ever, art can help lift our spirits and support our wellbeing
Although the AGO is closed, we will still be engaging with our AGO community:
- Our online learning will continue! Check out our Virtual School Programs, children, youth and adult courses, and fun artful activities you can do from home.
- Our online talks will continue as planned.
What lies ahead?
To help curb growing cases of COVID-19, the Government of Ontario extended the most recent stay-at-home order to June 2 at the earliest. In the coming days and weeks, we should know more about what lies ahead. We simply do not know how long the AGO will be closed.
We will continue to be guided by the advice of local, provincial and national public health officials, consider all government recommendations and will make decisions as needed regarding any additional measures.
We will be contacting visitors who have booked tickets to arrange for refunds. For our AGO Members and Annual Pass Holders we are prepared to offer an extension to your expiry date to reflect the length of time you’ll miss during this temporary closure.
As a non-profit arts organization, the AGO is grateful for our community’s continued support through these unprecedented times.
