“Beautiful Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

Love the venue, it is small, intimate and the historic architecture of the building has been maintained. New additions are beautiful.

“Tattoos and The Stories They Tell”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

This is a very interesting show well worth the visit. It makes you understand that there are many strong stories behind the tattoos we may just see as fashion statements.

“small but trying hard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

PAMA is relatively new and as such is growing. The staff and volunteers have been putting together some very good programs and presentations,. Upcoming is a display of tattoo photos and their stories. The historic display area of Peel region is very interesting. This is not the Royal Ontario Museum but it's worth a look.

“World class gallery museum and archives”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

For decades Brampton and the Region of Peel and a large group of volunteers have worked to provide a top notch facility for people to learn about art, artefacts and the history. PAMA is unmatched in Ontario for its local history collection and the depth of its local art collection. NOT to be missed by visitors and residents of Brampton.

“A quality small museum and gallery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

The gallery has a fascinating collection of art and I didn't get to see it all as part of it was closed when I went. The portion incorporating the old gaol is also very interesting and educational. A good way to spend an hour or two and very inexpensive admission.
