The ROM will also be opening up spaces for non-profit groups and ROM Community Access Network (ROMCAN) partners at a reduced rate to allow access to those who might not otherwise have access to the museum’s facilities.

The free general admission will not include feature exhibits such as Zuul: Life of an Armoured Dinosaur and Treasures of a Desert Kingdom: The Royal Arts of Jodhpur.
