Enjoy priority access and a worry free visit

Membership Cards and ID
To enjoy priority access, please have each member present their membership card and ID. If you do not have your membership cards and ID, please check in at the Membership desk.

Baggage Checking
To ensure easy access and in the interest of safety and security for our visitors, the following practices are observed at the Royal Ontario Museum.

Members and visitors are required to check backpacks, bags, parcels, and purses exceeding 16" x 12" x 6" in size. Bags and other oversized items may be checked free of charge, and a complimentary cloth bag may be obtained for a small deposit, for your comfort while visiting. A cost of $1 applies to each checked garment for members and $2 for the general public.

Tips for Families
Bags containing baby needs must be safely stowed under a stroller and are subject to inspection. Backpack style child carriers are not permitted for safety reasons. Rental strollers are provided at the Coat Check, at a cost of $2, subject to availability. Strollers are permitted in the Museum. Oversized strollers may be restricted on very busy days, as they can pose a risk to other members and visitors. Wagons are not permitted.

Food Services
Members received a 10% discount in Food Studio and Caf and in c5 Restaurant Lounge.

Food of any type is not permitted in the Museum galleries. If you plan to bring lunch with you, visit our "brown bag" lunch area which is provided for use by all visitors on the Level 1B of the east wing. Food brought to and from this location must be carried in sealed containers, not exceeding the bag size restriction.
