Special Note to Curators’ Circle, Permanent, Corporate and Foundation Members

You do not need to book timed-entry tickets. Simply show your membership card at the Membership Desk to receive free admission for you and your guests (no ID required). This applies to ALL special members-only dates as well as to other additional events specifically for your membership level.


How often can I see the exhibition?

AGO members can see the exhibition as often as they like. However, Member tickets must be booked in advance. Book tickets for your first visit. Book your second visit after your first visit has taken place — and so on. To accommodate last-minute and unplanned visits, we will also have available a limited number of Member tickets each day, for each time slot, on a first-come-first-served basis. We urge you to reserve your tickets well in advance to avoid disappointment. Once all available Member tickets for a particular date have been booked, we will not be able to accommodate additional requests for that date.


A Reminder....

Free member tickets to this exhibition may be used only by AGO member cardholders and by their allowable guests (as included in their membership-level privileges). Member cardholders must always accompany their guests. Members will be asked to show their membership card and photo ID along with their ticket. The number of member tickets available per day will be limited. Your membership must be active in order to book and use your member tickets. Memberships and member tickets are not transferable.
