PEM/PM, our after-hours party series, offers unconventional programming the third Thursday of every month. The evenings are structured around a fun or topical theme that connects to exhibitions and the museum collection and targets all types of creative individuals. Each PEM/PM features after-hours access to the museum galleries, interactive and art-focused experiences, an informal atmosphere including live music or DJ performances, tailored culinary offerings and a cash bar. There are multiple opportunities to interact with artists and performers, tinkerers and thinkers.

Also on the third Thursday of every month, the entire museum stays open from 10 am to 9:00 pm.
