Silk Bodice  detail

Going through the textiles in OMAH's collection is always an adventure, but every now and then you stumble across something that truly takes your breath away. While re-storaging our Textile Collection under the Museum Assistance Program this summer, a silk bodice caught our eye.

Research Room Launch

 

So good, it's criminal...

On Friday October 3, 2014 The Orillia Museum of Art & History and Lake Country Rotary were proud to announce the unveiling of our newly relocated Research Room. Housed in the Sir Sam Steele Memorial Building's infamous Jail Cells, visitors are surrounded by Orillia history and are offered excellent accessibility to OMAH's own archives. The generosity of Lake Country Rotary has gone far in helping sustain the Research Room and help it grow as we start the digitization of our resources.
