The Orillia Museum of Art & History will be a cultural centre open to all that will inspire creativity and celebrate history by creating excitement and wonderment for the arts, history, and culture communities.
Our vision is to be the anchor for the significant and growing arts, local-history and cultural community in Orillia and surrounding area by offering exciting exhibits, events, innovative programming and activities that reach out to and engage all citizens, seasonal residents and visitors.
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.
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.
