Family Visits

At PEM, we want to make it easy for you and your family to connect with art and culture. Our Art & Nature Center, with hands-on activities, discovery drawers, games and computer stations, is a great place to start.

You can also embark on a treasure hunt of sorts and search for animals or sailing ships in the PEM collection using our complimentary Gallery Discovery Kits.

Check the calendar for the next Weekend Festival and join the rest of the PEM community for unforgettable dance, music, film, art making and opportunities to meet artists and performers. Whatever you choose to do while you’re here — listen to a story during PEM Pals or make a drawing — we want your visit to be relaxing and enjoyable.
