*POSTPONED* The Speakeasy

Friday, September 18, 2020 - 6:00pm to 9:30pm


Dear OMAH friends,

As the museum cares about the health and safety of our members, supporters, and visitors, we are taking some special measures in light of the COVID-19 flu pandemic. We want to mitigate any potential opportunities for the virus to spread. To this end, our Speakeasy special event scheduled for March 27th will be postponed. 

We’re going ahead with planning the rescheduled Speakeasy for Friday September 18.

Thank you as always for your support.


Yours in Culture,
Ninette Gyorody

Executive Director 


Join the Roaring 2020's!

This fundraiser will feature food, music, and activities inspired by the 1920's. 

Immerse yourself in a multi floor experience that will transport you to another century. Themed musicians will be playing in each area, including The Big Butter and The Egg Men. Explore the past with an exclusive pop up exhibition about Orillia in the 1920’s. We will be joined by local food purveyors and specialty drinks will be served. There will also be a photo booth so be sure to dress snazzy and jazzy for the occasion. Fund raised will go towards OMAH's programming for children and youth.
