On Nov. 7, the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) was recognized by the Ontario Museum Association (OMA) for outstanding contributions to the Ontario museum community.
PAMA received the Award of Excellence for Innovation for the Interactive Map of Peel, a 55” multi-touch screen built into a table that provides an interactive source of heritage and cultural history for Peel residents. This technology bridges the gap between the Region’s past and present, and provides an interactive source of heritage and cultural history for all residents.
The Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives are located in the original Peel County Courthouse and Brampton Jail buildings. The two sets of buildings are connected by an 82-metre-long underground tunnel, with two skylights. Recently it was closed down for extensive renovations and expansion.
Visit or call the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) at 9 Wellington Street East in Brampton, 905-791-4055.
