“touching lives to make a difference”
There are many reasons to come to PEM. Sometimes, looking at a work of art with someone special by your side is all the motivation you need. Sitting in the light-filled Atrium, having lunch outside in the Garden Restaurant, watching the expression on a child's face as she makes a collage — each experience is worth the trip. PEM is the place to come for enjoyment, enrichment, sharing with family and friends, and creative stimulation. We gain exciting insights about ourselves and other cultures through special exhibitions, Atrium Alive weekend festivals and family art-making programs. You are vital to the equation. Your experiences shape the art you look at and the performances you watch, making them more meaningful and transformative.
This museum is a gem, with wonderful exhibitions of painting, sculpture and photography...sculptures of Calder are showing there now and last summer's exhibition of Turner works was extraordinary. The building itself is an exciting architectural space, tucked into the ambience of colonial Salem
This museum is really awesome, loads of maritime history exhibits and ancient artifacts. Definitely take a tour of the full-size, authentic Chinese house that's reconstructed here.
