Visitor Guide

How long does it take to visit?

Visit times vary by guest but on average one to two hours. Some guests stop in on their lunch, others take their time reading exhibition information and chatting with gallery attendants for deeper insights.

What should I expect to see/what kind of art do you have?

What’s it like for kids at the AGA?

Kids are always welcome at the AGA. Strollers are welcome and we are a breastfeeding-friendly facility. In the interest of public health and safety, the BMO World of Creativity is closed.

Here are our visitor guidelines:

Please admire, but do not touch the artwork.

Large items are not permitted in exhibition spaces. Please leave items such as large backpacks, umbrellas and musical instruments at home.

Silence cell phones.

Keep food and drink outside the exhibition spaces.

Take flash-free photos (if photography is allowed in the exhibition) for personal use and social sharing only. Selfie sticks, tripods and flashes are not permitted in exhibition spaces.

Please note we do not have water fountains on-site. Please bring your own (full) water bottle.

Sorry, balloons are not allowed in the AGA.

What’s the accessibility like at the AGA?

The AGA is wheelchair-accessible and accompanying aides receive complimentary admission.
Sorry, due to COVID-19 safety protocols we are unable to provide guest wheelchairs at this time.
