Museum and Arts Pass

I've been known to grumble now and then about this charming little burg, but here's something to sing about: the Toronto Public Library's Museum and Arts Pass.

For the small price of having to haul my ass to the library at 9 a.m. this Saturday morning, I can now visit the Art Gallery of Ontario free of charge. In subsequent weeks I'll be checking out passes for the ROM, Science Centre, the Zoo, Casa Loma ... and the list goes on.

Conditions vary by venue, but most offer admission for up to two adults and two to four children on the same pass. Even better, passes can be borrowed again and again; the only limitation is one pass per person per week. And the pass needn't be returned to the library—it's surrendered at the venue.

What with general admission at major museums routinely eclipsing $20, this is a fabulous deal.
