Ever dream of visiting the gallery without the crowds? This morning, we’ve invited 20 Torontonians — art fans, Instagram photographers, social media influencers — for an early-bird, behind-the-scenes tour, all before we opened to the public. This surreal experience is our pilot event, the first of its kind at the AGO. Follow the #emptyAGO experience below, and stay tuned for updates about future tours.

Before the crowds
Ever dream of visiting the gallery without the crowds? Our first #emptyAGO tour is your chance to experience the AGO before we open to the public.

On Thursday, May 26, 9am–10:30am, we’re asking 20 Torontonians — art fans, Instagram photographers, social media influencers — to roam the empty gallery, snap photos, and hear behind-the-scenes stories from the AGO’s Social Media Officer. This surreal experience is our pilot event, the first of its kind at the AGO.

What’s included:

  • Access to an entirely empty AGO
  • Breakfast mingle in the Grange House
  • Same-day admission to the AGO (which opens at 10:30am)

Sign up has closed. Please stay tuned for the next #emptyAGO event!
