Imagine dancing with dragons, building a ship model or making art together as a family. When you step inside the Peabody Essex Museum — or visit us online — you enter a world of artistic and cultural experiences from past and present. PEM links art to the wider world and back again — to you.

See where artists get their inspiration and exercise your own creative flair. PEM’s online interactives relate to exhibitions and our collection, bringing to life art and artists, global culture, and the creative process in innovative ways. Experience PEM from home with these activities. Check out the play zone! You’ll always find new ways to connect and explore.
