Vancouver Art Gallery to begin letting children in for free on Sundays, starting in January
The Vancouver Art Gallery is set to become a little more kid—and parent—friendly.
It's just announced that, starting January 5, all children under 12 will get free admission on Sundays. That also means free access to the gallery's educational programs and workshops for kids on those days.
The initiative is being made possible by support from its "Visionary Partner", the Diamond Foundation.
Established by Gordon and Leslie Diamond in 1985, the Diamond Foundation is a family charitable organization. The new free-admission program is the latest part of a multiyear initiative supported by the fFoundation to provide subsidized community access to the VAG for B.C. residents.
Regular adult admission to the gallery is $17, with children five and over costing $6 to enter; a family gets in for $50. Children under five get in free.
