Community Outreach

The Peabody Essex Museum’s programs extend well beyond the galleries. PEM’s role in both the greater Salem community and the global community at large continues to transform people’s lives by broadening their perspectives, attitudes and knowledge of themselves and the wider world. PEM’s outreach programs celebrate the outstanding artistic and cultural creativity of our community members. Our programs explore artwork and culture in ways that increase student knowledge and relate to our visitors' lives.
