Donate to our Collection

Do you have artifacts that you would like to donate to our collection?  Please fill out this FORM so we can gather as much information on your proposed donation as possible.  This will help us create a detailed accession file should your artifacts be accepted. 

Please be aware that OMAH has a mandate we must follow when selecting new artifacts for accession which ensures that our collection is relevant and up to date.  This means that not all artifacts can be selected, and some may be selected for purposes other than display, such as for our education collection.  We are grateful for your time and your interest in OMAH’s collection.

Land Acknowledgement

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.
