2023 Exhibition Refresh


Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) is bringing an exciting new vision to its museum with the first refresh of its core exhibitions since 2012.

The new exhibitions will stay true to the museum’s primary purpose – to share the stories of the Peel Region. Using the guiding principle “Nothing About Us, Without Us”, the revamped galleries will bring an even stronger focus to the people and communities of Peel.  

What does this mean for visitors?

Over the next year, the PAMA museum and art gallery will launch three brand-new core exhibitions that highlight objects from its permanent collection, many of which will be on view for the first time. The introduction of more hands-on and technology-driven activities throughout the museum galleries will provide a host of new ways for visitors of all ages to be inspired and make connections to the Region’s past and present.
