The Canadian Museum of Nature is set to raise admission prices on an annual basis.
Fees will rise by 50 cents starting next month and John Swettenham, the vice president of experience and engagement at the museum, says the jump reflects cost increases.
"We decided that it was a good idea to go to annual increases," he tells CFRA. "They'd sort of happened [...] a little bit haphazardly in the past and it just seemed to make more sense to have something kind of smaller and more predictable — sort of do what would be, I think, more of a normal pricing program for any business."
As of April 1, an adult ticket will cost $12.50.
Swettenham says the price adjustment will help them maintain the building and bring in special exhibits.
