What makes a person leave their home to strike out somewhere new?  In a country as big as Canada, what makes someone choose the city of Orillia?  What is it about Orillia that makes people want to stay?
 
In our exhibit, “Welcome Home to Orillia,” we interviewed eleven individuals from six continents who immigrated to Orillia to ask them these questions.  Their incredible stories of resilience and courage in the face of changing circumstances are on display at OMAH, alongside some of the objects they chose to bring with them.  Come visit the museum to learn about the amazing stories of people living right here in our community.
