Plan Ahead Pricing FAQs

What is Plan Ahead Pricing?

Plan Ahead Pricing allows you to reserve a spot to explore ROM on a day that suits your schedule, and lock in admission savings at the same time. Our ticketing calendar lists admission prices for each day the Museum is open. Visitors are encouraged to explore the calendar to find a day that fits their schedule and budget.

How do I get the best price?

The best way to take advantage of Plan Ahead Pricing is to lock in your savings by purchasing Museum tickets in advance. In general, prices during peak periods will be higher than during non-peak periods.

How far in advance do I need to purchase tickets in order to save?

Generally, the further ahead you purchase a ticket, the more you’ll save. Tickets will typically cost more if purchased on the day of a visit, so buying at least a day in advance will always save you money.

If I buy today, is it possible for the price to go down tomorrow?

No, but the price may increase over time, so it is always best to buy your ticket in advance. Not only will this give you the best available ticket price, it will also guarantee your spot to experience the Museum – particularly applicable during high visitation periods like holidays and special events.

What are the least expensive times to visit?

Booking in advance with Plan Ahead Pricing provides the best savings on any given day. In addition to Plan Ahead Pricing, ROM offers other lower-priced admissions options through special admission and community accessibility programs, such as Third Tuesday Night Free, ROMCAN, and more.

What if I need to buy more tickets at a later date? Will I get the same ticket price?

Not necessarily. Ticket prices may change daily, so purchasing additional tickets at a later date may cost more. The only way to lock in a price is by purchasing the ticket at the time the price is displayed. If you need additional tickets, we recommend buying as soon as possible to take advantage of Plan Ahead Pricing savings.
