- Curated and facilitated contemporary art exhibitions based on specialized themes that are relevant to the community and contextualize our community within current social, cultural and political themes on a regional and national scale.
- Curated thematic history-based exhibitions that are enriched through artefacts from the collection and by stories from the community.
- Provided a variety of interactive learning experiences through interpretive programs related to exhibitions and through education programs designed for school-age children and youth.
- Supported local artists and the artisan community to promote, display and market their work in our gift shop.
- Provided community and area support and services with day camps for children, drop-in programs for families, volunteer opportunities and participation in community forums. Liaisons are formed with provincial, municipal and local cultural organizations to further the awareness, appreciation and

The Orillia Museum of Art & History is located on the traditional territory of the Anishnaabeg. The Anishinaabeg include the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Pottawatomi nations, collectively known as the Three Fires Confederacy. We respect and observe the long and enduring presence of Indigenous Peoples – First Nations, Metis and Inuit – on this land. Their teachings and stewardship, culture and way of life have shaped our City’s unique identity.
In acknowledging that we occupy colonized Indigenous territories, and out of respect for the rights of Indigenous people, we accept our collective responsibility to recognize our colonial histories as well as their present-day manifestations in order to honour, protect, and sustain this land.
