More to see and experience than expected. A good variety of art and artifacts in this old building that used to house prisoners. I'll stay longer the next time around!!

We've seen a couple of exhibits here and they've always been very good. They took and old courthouse and jail and renovated it, with some very funky glass additions and an underground tunnel/exhibition space added. Worth going just to see the architecture.

Small museum with a tour of the courthouse. Local park opposite and parking lot but can be full. Free for Canada 150

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.

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.
