2022 Construction


Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) is undergoing a significant upgrade project to improve Peel's heritage complex located in downtown Brampton and home to Peel's historic Courthouse and Jail opened in 1867. This construction project will see improved airflow to enhance visitor experience and to ensure the safeguarding of collections. PAMA will also be taking this time to revisit permanent exhibitions, conduct community consultations and refresh spaces.

During this time the Access Peel Front Desk on the Art Gallery side is accessible from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday.

Accessible entrance is from the PAMA parking lot and Main Street entrances.
