Multisensory Art Cart in Walker Court.
The AGO is piloting new Relaxed Visit times, so you can visit in a relaxed and supportive environment.
What is a Relaxed Visit?
The Art Gallery of Ontario’s Relaxed Visit times are intended to be sensitive to and welcoming of neurodiverse visitors, including visitors on the autism spectrum, those with sensory and communication disorders, people with learning disabilities, or those who simply want a more relaxed visit experience.
Relaxed Visit Times differ from other times at the AGO in a number of ways:
All expressions are welcome at the AGO and visitors have the freedom to move, stim, and make noise while they explore the Gallery.
Visitors will have advance access to a Visual Guide that details the AGO experience, step by step, in order to reduce anxiety about it, and a Sensory Map with detailed information about navigating the AGO.
Patrons will have access to Sensory Kits that include noise reducing headphones, a visual timer, visual cues, fidget toys and sunglasses provided at our Multisensory Art Cart, which also offers sensory based activities.
Please note that select exhibition spaces may still contain heightened visual or auditory stimuli, such as loud noises or bright light. Quiet zones highlighted on our Sensory map are available throughout the museum if you wish to bypass these areas.
Please note that at 4:45 pm there will be a loud chime, followed by an announcement that the Gallery will close in 15 minutes. There will be a second chime and announcement when the Gallery closes at 5:00 pm
