The City of Timmins is proud to announce that Karen Bachmann, our Director / Curator of Timmins Museum: National Exhibition Centre has been honoured with the Distinguished Career Award of Excellence from the Ontario Museum Association (OMA). The OMA Distinguished Career Award of Excellence is presented to individuals who have created a lasting and meaningful contribution within the museum community.

Bachmann began her career at the Timmins Museum in 1986. In her tenure, the Museum has gone through a relocation, renovation, and rebranding. She has personally overseen over 600 temporary and travelling exhibitions. Bachmann is dedicated to preserving and promoting local history and, most recently, was instrumental in creating the City of Timmins’ Municipal Heritage Committee, which will continue to help protect Timmins’ past.

In her role as Director/Curator of the Museum, Karen affords our residents the opportunity to see beyond the everyday. This award is well-deserved and I’m happy to offer my sincere congratulations.”
