Help us achieve incredible things


Since 1799, the collection of the Peabody Essex Museum has offered a window into the world. Today, when many of our global institutions seem mired in divisiveness, PEM's dedication to the diversity of global culture creates a unique experience that celebrates a broad spectrum of artistic expression.

From Ocean Liners and It's Alive to WOW® and Georgia O'Keeffe, this year's exhibitions provide experiences that generate wonder and discovery and opportunities to view exceptional works of art.

We invite you to become a part of the PEM community. Come and take a tour of the exhibitions, the construction site or participate in our Book Club. Join a visiting committee or think about becoming a PEM guide. Please share your thoughts, your reactions and your ideas with us. We also invite you to contribute to PEM in order to ensure the continued strength of our exhibitions, outreach and education programs.

Your support of our programs, whether through our Annual Fund or our East India Marine Associates leadership giving, allows us to fulfill our mission of providing experiences that transform people's lives. Thank you for your gifts. And, please come visit. Become part of the PEM family!

All the best,
Amanda Clark MacMullan
Chief Philanthropy Officer
