  • Saw some of the paintings by J.L. Forster, one of Canada's leading portrait painters in his day. Exhibits change visit often. 
  • Presents right ambience and substance for an art gallery. Must visit for Brampton visitors. Can also storll town area around. 
  • 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. 
  • What a pleasant surprise! We just happened to be in the neighborhood and thought we'd check it out. For a modest county museum, it had some interesting exhibits that even had our kids excited. The museum guides really added to our experience. Our guide, Colin, had a lot of interesting things to show us, along with the facts to bring history to life for us. Highlights included the jail cells and the court house. Our kids enjoyed the interactive and fun play areas. Our thanks for a memorable experience. NOTE: the art gallery was closed for renovations, so we didn't get to take in the art collection - yet!
  • One of the greatest hidden gems of Peel Region. Although the jail is really neat, there is actually very little of it to explore and see (3 cells total). I feel that this jailhouse is so small that it should have all been kept originally intact, and not mostly converted into archives and a very small museum on the second floor. That could have been done in any building in Peel Region, why convert a timeless piece of Ontario's history into a mostly modern museum showcase? It would have been nice to see all of the inner jail inside in its entirety. Instead there is barely anything left inside for people to see. Also, the courthouse is not regularly open to the public. I was lucky enough to see it with a tour guide but I was informed it's not always open which is a shame since it is very beautiful and fits in with the jailhouse tour. The art gallery is nice but very small. At least it's all included in one admission price.
  • Nice gem about the history of peel region. Archives are there.
  • The people are really nice, but they don't often show all of their collections. They have some sections that they won't let you go into.
  • A great place to visit in the heart of Brampton!
