Went to see a watercolour exhibit but stayed to visit the whole complex. They have a wonderful range of changing exhibits and semi permanent displays. A great intro to history of Peel. The collection of art is broad and informative.

My family has been in the Brampton area since the 1800's. This museum offers up culture and heritage that is very educational and entertaining. The staff are wonderful and answered all of the questions posed to them. There are often different exhibits of local artists etc. to add to the experience. We had a wonderful time there.

I have been here quite a few times, the last time for a wedding shower. We could look down into the old court rooms. Almost everyone decided to come back and look through the museum at a later date.
