My Fun Night at the ROM

I just got back from the ROM to see the Vanity Fair Photo Exhibit. I really enjoyed it. I paid $11 for my ticket- Price of a movie! You can visit the ROM on Fridays, from 4:30 pm to 9:30 pm for $11 - a real steal. For more info on prices visit here.

Personally, I find the price of culture these days so expensive. So finding a deal like this makes me feel better about our society in relation to the arts. Culture should be available to everyone regardless of your economic situation. I find the prices of these activities expensive to say the least- it makes me sad to think that there are children who because of cost are not exposed to the arts. On my journey to the ROM via subway I noticed that there is an organization advertised called Arts for Children of Toronto. I would like to see this type of program available in all schools! Really neat. Anyway, check out the ROM on Friday nights. Don't be alarmed by the line up - it goes really fast although the membership sales lady is awfully tempting with her lure of "don't stand in line and buy a membership" - which by the way costs $139 for a family/year. Also, I should mention that ROM also does have a program called Royal Ontario Museum’s Community Access Network (ROM CAN)- which provides free tickets to communities and individuals who may not otherwise visit the Museum. The United Way Toronto distributes tickets through its network of health and social service agencies. The Institute for Canadian Citizenship distributes Museum family passes to new Canadians during citizenship ceremonies each month, as part of its Cultural Access Pass Program.
