A 5-minute drive south of the town center, the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives brings together a collection of pieces from the surrounding region.

The museum area holds furniture, garments and farm tools from the 19th and 20th centuries while the archives preserve old photographs and newspapers.

Just a short walk north, the Rose Theatre puts on frequent performances of traditional music and acting. The smaller auditorium regularly hosts stand-up comedy nights and dance workshops.

For fresh air, visit pretty Gage Park. Surrounded by fragrant flower beds and woodland, the area has several paths and trails, as well as lawns and picnic areas.

Brampton has been welcoming people of different nationalities and faiths for years. See evidence in the shape of several beautiful buildings. The Hindu Temple northwest of the city features glistening white peaks while the Ukrainian Catholic Church farther south is a majestic façade of rounded wood towers and spires.
