To quote Arthur, “having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a library card!”
Toronto Public Library cardholders can get FREE access to the city’s top attractions thanks to the Museum and Arts Pass (MAP) program.
The program allows you to access Toronto’s top museums and cultural attractions by signing out a MAP Pass at your local library.
The list of attractions is stacked:
AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario)
ROM (Royal Ontario Museum)
Ontario Science Centre
Black Creek Pioneer Village
Aga Khan Museum
To access this pass, you must present your Toronto Library Card at your nearest branch. Each cardholder is limited to one pass per week. The good news is one pass can admit a family of up to two adults and four children.

When visiting the attraction of your choice, have your ID, MAP Pass (with due date receipt), and your Toronto Library Card, and you’re good to go. Upon entry, passes will be surrendered to the venue, and do not have to be returned to the library itself.
The program functions much like a library visit, by borrowing passes to an attraction as opposed to a book. This is the perfect opportunity to save on a wholesome day out with family and friends. It’s what Arthur would have wanted.
