Annual Pass FAQs

What is the difference between an AGO Membership and an Annual Pass?

Annual Passes offer admission only. AGO Membership offers a wide variety of benefits that are not available to Annual Pass holders, such as Members’ only Previews prior to the opening of special exhibitions, exclusive access to the Norma Ridley Members’ Lounge, coat check, and discounts in shopAGO, AGO Bistro and for courses and classes. Members also have pride in knowing that their support allows the AGO to fulfill its mandate to ensure access to art for all.

Will I receive my AGO Annual Pass right away?

The Pass will be delivered to you via email for you to save on your phone (in an app like Wallet), but it may take some time to be processed. Purchases on or after May 25 will be processed within 24 hrs.

What if I don’t have a mobile phone for the digital card?

Passholders who don’t have a mobile phone can stop by the AGO’s Welcome Desk and present a photo I.D. to obtain a general admission ticket for entry.

Can someone else use my pass?

AGO Annual Passes are non-transferable and non-refundable.
