PAMA launches exhibition refresh in 2023

Brampton, ON. (February 15, 2023) - Starting in 2023, the 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.

PAMA core exhibition reopening schedule:

Spring 2023

Summer 2023

Fall 2023


In addition to a wealth of programs and events for children, youth and adults, PAMA has a full exhibition schedule for visitors to enjoy in 2023:

We're beyond excited to share these new exhibitions with the public! Staff are engaging with historians and academics to ground exhibitions in history while connecting with community members to make throughlines between the past and present.
