About Us

Who we are

The Orillia Museum of Art & History (OMAH) is an incorporated registered charity that acts as a hub of culture and heritage in the heart of Orillia’s Peter Street Arts District.  Located in the heart of downtown Orillia, the clocktower of the Sir Samuel Memorial Building is a beacon for our historical location, but that’s just the beginning! For over twenty years, OMAH has been inspiring creativity and celebrating history, growing as a hub for local artists and historians. 

We invite families to try our drop in programs, teachers to explore our educational programming, learn about Orillia and area’s vibrant history, or enjoy an exhibition or two. 



To inspire creativity and celebrate local history by expanding awareness and appreciation of art, local history and culture in the Orillia community and surrounding area.


The Orillia Museum of Art & History will be the anchor for the significant and growing arts, local history and cultural community in Orillia and surrounding area by offering exciting and innovative exhibits, events, programming and activities that reach out and engage all citizens, seasonal residents and visitors.
