OPEN FLAME POLICY:

At our museum, we prioritize safety while celebrating special occasions like birthdays. In line with our commitment to providing a secure environment for all our guests, we kindly request that candles or any other open flames not be brought onto the premises for birthday parties. This policy ensures the protection of our valuable exhibits and the well-being of everyone in attendance. We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to this guideline as we strive to make every birthday celebration a memorable and enjoyable experience.

Our birthday packages are offered to all ages. If you are celebrating a 19+ birthday, an additional bar charge can be supplied, for a wine and paint birthday party.  For questions, and additional themes, please contact Vanessa Santala, Operations Coordinator at visitors@orilliamuseum.org.

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.
