1.8 million works and many of them the first to be collected in this country a offer experiences unique among American art museums. At PEM, our goal is not to hang art on the walls and then tell you what to think. Deep and far ranging, the collection opens windows onto how people live, work and celebrate. Here, you can explore art and the world in which it is made revealing and comparing concepts of creativity, individuality, community, tradition, spirituality and even emotion. And the connections you make, because of your own experiences, inspire a journey as important as the artworks themselves.

Student groups - 1 adult complimentary for every 10 paid kids. Adult groups - driver and escort complimentary. What better way to enjoy PEM than with a group of friends or family? The museum welcomes groups of all ages at reduced rates for a minimum of 10 people. Guided and self-guided tours of the museum_¢¬Ä¬ôs galleries are available.
