Toronto (Wednesday, April 1, 2015) – The Aga Khan Museum has joined Toronto Public Library’s Sun Life Financial Museum + Arts Pass (MAP) program and now offers five passes per week at 50 library branches across Toronto. The pass grants a free family pass for two adults and three children to the Museum, and can be borrowed from Toronto Public Library using a valid adult library card, much the way someone might borrow a book from the Library’s collection.

The Sun Life Financial Museum + Arts Pass provides full admission to families of two adults and up to five children (admission restrictions vary by venue) to a wide and eclectic range of venues, including the Art Gallery of Ontario, Bata Shoe Museum, Black Creek Pioneer Village, City of Toronto Historic Sites, Gardiner Museum, Museum of Inuit Art, Ontario Science Centre, Royal Ontario Museum, Textile Museum of Canada, Toronto Zoo and now, the Aga Khan Museum.

The Aga Khan Museum shares the Toronto Public Library’s commitment to make knowledge, experience, and information accessible to all. We are at our core an educational institution that aims to show connections between cultures across geography and across time. Joining the MAP program will go a long way in encouraging Torontonians to see the Museum as a shared space where people and ideas come together.”

– Henry Kim, Director and CEO, Aga Khan Museum

Since its inception eight years ago, the Sun Life Financial Museum + Arts Pass program has become increasingly popular with over 545,000 passes borrowed resulting in over 1 million Torontonians visiting the participating venues. Several program partners offer passes at all 99 Toronto Public Library branches. Full borrowing rules are listed at

As part of our award-winning Making the Arts More Accessible® program, the Sun Life Financial Museum + Arts Pass program helps make the arts available to everyone, regardless of their means.”

– Paul Joliat, Assistant Vice-President, Philanthropy and Sponsorships, Sun Life Financial
