Are you looking for something fun to do with the kids? OMAH has the answer! At the Orillia Museum of Art & History, we are busy gathering some of our favourite creators to guide workshops that kids and guardians can enjoy together.  “Family Fun Days” are 1.5-hour art/activity sessions which will be offered on the third Saturday of every month.  Each class will offer a new theme and expert who will guide groups in a fun and engaging project or activity.  To see what’s coming up, check out the menu below, and continue to check back in as we add more classes to the list.

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.
