After two years of closure 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 tours and in-person visits.

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 expected to reopen on Thursday, The PAMA museum and archives remain closed until the fall for renovations.

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 facilities and events that PAMA has in store for you when we reopen. Programs are subject to change due to COVID-19 community guidelines.
