Summer at the Museums

Looking for things to do with your family or out-of-town visitors this summer? Entry to all 10 Toronto History Museums is now permanently free for everyone! Plan your museum visit. Some exhibitions and events may carry a charge where noted.

If you have children, summer camp spots are still available. Check availability.


Awakenings is a series of art projects created within Toronto History Museums by Black, Indigenous and artists of colour, operating under the principles of anti-oppression, anti-colonialism, and anti-racism. Read the Awakenings Curatorial Statement.

The 2022 Awakenings Artist Mentorship program, in partnership with curator and creative director Ashley McKenzie Barnes, is accepting artist applications until July 29. This first-of-its-kind mentorship opportunity is open to emerging and mid-career artists 21 years of age or older working in contemporary visual art, design and interdisciplinary practices, with a focus on projects from the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
