What’s Going On at the ROM

Have a dinosaur lover in your life? Well good news, the Royal Ontario Museum is back open to the public.

If you’re looking to go and enjoy all the museum has to offer, there are a couple of things that you should know. First, the museum is only open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM.

Watch the Leafs and Raptors Now at Ontario Place

If you miss the feeling of cheering on your team, Ontario Place has you covered. Working together with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, they are showing a series of Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors games live.

Every game will begin with a 30-minute pre-show, and food and drinks will be available for pre-order. They will even allow you to buy team merchandise that will be delivered right to your vehicle.

Admission for a game is a minimum donation of $25 to the MLSE Foundation, which covers everyone in your car. You can buy your tickets online at the OLG Play Stage website.

What’s New at the Toronto Zoo

The Toronto Zoo is now re-opened and has new measures and added safety precautions to help keep you safe.

As with most city attractions, pre-booked tickets are required for both guests and Zoo Members, and are ONLY available online.

For those who want to see the zoo from the comfort of their car; take a drive and tour the Toronto Zoo Scenic Safari! You will have a Zoo Keeper give you a guided tour through the park and learn about animals as you pass through a variety of different habitats. You’ll even drive through the lion cave! For more information on what you’ll need, what to expect and to purchase tickets, visit:

Catch a Hot Doc with DriveinTO

If you’re looking to catch a movie, but want to be more socially distant than in a theatre, the City has partnered with businesses to open drive-ins across the city.

Part of the program is sponsoring free movies around Toronto. Next Tuesday, Hot Docs will be screening Stop Making Sense at Ontario Place. The film is a documentary released in 1984 about the Talking Heads playing concerts at the top of their stardom and has been called one of the best music movies of all time.

There is a full schedule of free movies set to run until the end of summer. For a full list of what’s going on where, you can find a calendar of events here.
