To our visitors, employees, and volunteers,
We share your concern about the COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) pandemic and have decided to temporarily close the Museum in line with Ontario public health directives. We are tentatively scheduled to reopen on April 7. Our reopening date could change based upon guidance we receive from health officials.
All our scheduled events and programs up to and including April 6 have been cancelled. Ticket purchases for affected Museum events, programs, and performances will be automatically refunded by March 20, 2020. If you do not receive your refund by the end of March 20, please contact us at [email protected] and we will endeavour to respond within 24 hours. (If you were planning to attend a private event at the Museum during this period, please contact the third party responsible for the booking.)
To minimize inconvenience for our visitors, we have also decided to suspend all ticket sales for events scheduled for up to and including April 30. Please check back after April 6 for updates on the status of these events.
Please check our website for the latest updates and announcements. We continue to monitor this situation closely and will provide ongoing updates as needed. We also encourage you to stay up to date through the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 information page.
During our closure, we will provide you with the chance to engage with us online through a curated program of pictures from our collections and videos of past talks and performances. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram and Twitter to participate in this virtual Museum experience.
The Museum’s response to COVID-19 is part of our steadfast commitment to creating a safe and inviting environment for everyone. We thank you for your support, and we look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.
