May is Museum Month, and Brampton’s Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) is gearing up some mystery, history and adventure.

PAMA is holding events this May that will give local sleuths and amature detectives a chance to investigate clues and discover the Region of Peel’s historic past.

The museum is also hosting a number of new exhibits and is celebrating both Youth Week and Mother’s Day with in-person and virtual events.

Here’s some of what PAMA has in store for May:

Uncovering History: An Interactive Scavenger Hunt

In the 1930s, William Perkins Bull sent teams of researchers throughout Peel to collect its history and stories.

Over 80 years later, the Peel Archives are digging into the research when they discover a series of missing pieces, pieces that could change history as we know it.

Characters from Peel’s past have come to life throughout PAMA to guide you through challenges and puzzles to uncover history that has been missing… until now. Are you up for the challenge?
