      Help PEM Grow

      Know before you go

      In-person event
      Location: Look for the Help PEM Grow table in the Main Atrium

      Included with admission

      From its roots as the East India Marine Society in 1799, PEM has grown into a vibrant hub for transformative art and educational experiences – all thanks to the support of our community. We’re celebrating everyone who helps PEM grow with a day of spring-themed activities!

      Go on a scavenger hunt for seasonal art objects in the museum, pick up a seed packet or add to our “Help PEM Grow” garden display by sharing a quote about why you love PEM! Plus, you can enter a drawing to win a private tour of Ropes Mansion for up to ten guests when it opens for the season later this spring.

      When you make a gift to the PEM Fund, you help plant seeds for the museum’s future.

      If you would like to join as a member and receive invitations to exhibition openings, tours and special events and programs, as well as complimentary museum admission, please visit or call 978-542-1641 to purchase an annual membership.
