Free membership for educators, health-care workers is a token of 'gratitude for their hard work during the COVID-19 crisis,' says official
These visitors enjoy the Orillia Museum of Art & History. For the rest of the year, the museum is offering free memberships to local health-care workers and educators.

The Orillia Museum of Art & History (OMAH) is offering free memberships for the rest of 2022 to local health-care employees and educators as a sign of its gratitude for their dedication, hard work and resilience during the COVID crisis of the past two years.

Our board of directors and staff agreed that we needed to show our appreciation for these front-line workers, and by opening our doors to them, we offer them a stress-free haven to explore, learn and simply take a break.

Anyone who identifies as a health care employee (staff or volunteer) or educator will receive a free membership for the remainder of 2022. Membership benefits include:

  • reduced rates for community programs (in-person and virtual), 
  • advance notice about exhibitions and events through a bi-weekly electronic newsletter
  • discounts in our gift shop
  • free admission to select art galleries across the province, including the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.

The museum is located in downtown Orillia at 30 Peter St. South. It is open from Tuesday to Saturday between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Membership can be redeemed at the museum.

OMAH strives through its programming to help us understand who we are as a society and where we are going. It brings people together, providing a space for collaboration while simultaneously inspiring creativity and celebrating history.
