There's a new brew at the Orillia Museum of Art & History!

OMAH has released two new exclusively blended teas, available for purchase now at the OMAH shop!


The Labour of Art is about quilts as a visual form of text.   At their core, quilts bind together small details that create narratives that are shared from person to person, community to community.   

OMAH's Backpack program was designed to enable families  – and in particular, children – to engage in the museum in a more interactive way. Each backpack is filled with a variety of hands-on items that connect with the art and history that OMAH has to offer.  Children can wear the backpack around the museum and use its contents to help explore the exhibitions. Backpacks even include a scavenger hunt and a storybook. Each backpack is unique, encouraging multiple visits.  
OMAH kicked off the festive season with Festival of Trees this past Saturday. We had the generous donation of hardboard from Home Hardware for over 90 artists to create just over 100 original works of art. We are truly thankful for the talent and creativity from the participating artists. 75 works went to good homes and helped the museum raise $5000 towards community programmes.
Thank you so much to the generosity of:
