We Are PEM




Stand with us.

As the oldest continually operating museum in the US, a civic and cultural hub for the North Shore and beyond, PEM has been experienced by generations of visitors.

We recognize the incredible toll that the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on our world, our country and our own community. These challenging times underscore our gratitude to our community for all you do for us. Now, more than ever, your financial support in any amount can protect PEM for generations to come.

With your help, we are confident that we will emerge from this time with a renewed resilience and unwavering commitment to continue what PEM’s founders began in 1799: connecting people to art and culture from around the world.

Any size donation is welcome and appreciated during these challenging times. To demonstrate our belief in the consoling and uplifting power of art, when you make a gift of any amount or for any purpose, PEM will give a membership to the essential healthcare workers at North Shore Medical Center in appreciation of their heroic, life-saving efforts in the face of COVID-19.

Here are the ways you can help:


Give to PEM’s Annual Fund
PEM’s Annual Fund provides vital funding that keeps the museum open and accessible — even while our doors are temporarily closed. A gift of any amount is appreciated, but we hope you may consider donating $20 today, the price of one adult admission to PEM.
