Brampton’s Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) reopens on Thursday


Published April 4, 2022 at 4:41 pm

After two years closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Brampton’s Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) is set to reopen.

On Thursday (April 7), the PAMA Art Gallery and Courthouse will be open to the public for in-person visits and tours.

General admission to PAMA will be free for a limited time to celebrate the reopening, but staff say donations are appreciated and welcome. 

PAMA has been closed since March 2020, and while the gallery is set to reopen on Thursday, PAMA’s Museum and Archives remain closed until the fall for construction.

Guests who might not be ready to return to PAMA for in-person events can head to the gallery’s YouTube channel to enjoy a guided meditation session.

Here are some of the installations and events PAMA has in store for the reopening. Programs are subject to change due to COVID-19 community guidelines.
