The Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) is making history this year through a $16-million restoration and construction project that commenced in 2010 to enhance the land and buildings that hold the Region of Peel’s museum, archives and art gallery. When PAMA re-opens, there will be expanded exhibition space and state-of-the art collection storage. PAMA is re-opening in three stages: the Art Gallery is now open, the grand opening takes place on Nov. 24-25, and the Family Day and Archives opening is on Feb. 18, 2013.

PAMA is a place to explore and learn about Peel’s culture and heritage, as well as use conversation, questions and stories to help make new and fascinating connections to the surrounding community. In addition to offering a variety of workshops and programs for all ages, PAMA offers family-friendly activities and free drop-in workshops throughout the year. Operated by the Region of Peel, PAMA is located at 9 Wellington St. E. in Brampton. Visit pama.peelregion.ca for more information.
