Please allow us to introduce you to some of the finest institutions our city has to offer. So fine indeed, that we would like to extend an invitation to you and your children to become members. It’s rather simple to join, you merely pay a fee and you’ll be privy to all kinds of delightful perks.
Here are a few of our favourites.
The Goods: Dinosaur discoveries aside, there’s so much to dig about a ROM membership. Try a Family/Dual membership for $149.
The Perks: Unlimited access for one year (two adults and up to four kids under 17). Members are given first rights to register for the ROM’s popular and often wait-listed summer and March break camps as well as free access to the ROM’s Tiny Tots programming, savings on kids’ birthday parties (parties include scavenger hunts, a private tour and a pizza) and more.
Ontario Science Centre
The Goods: The OSC‘s Silver For Us membership program for $130.
The Perks: Visit as often as you like (note that kids under three are free). Members receive a $50 discount for camps and birthday parties, discounts at the on-site Mastermind Toy store and 50% off parking and IMAX films. During busy periods, members gain quick entry via the upstairs express access point.
