Ontario Museum of History & Art
Located on tree-lined Euclid Avenue, The Ontario Museum of History & Art (OMHA) preserves, interprets and celebrates the history and cultural heritage of Ontario and the surrounding area.
From developing exhibitions, to engaging visitors through educational experiences, and events that inspire creative action, the Museum is an anchor to the growing downtown arts district.
The Museum is uniquely housed in Ontario’s former City Hall, a historical landmark funded by the Works Progress Administration. In 2019, the Museum celebrated its 40th Anniversary and it extended its vision, embracing long-term planning to ensure that the Museum’s capacity matches the growth in value to the community and visitors.
