Journey to a world of art and culture at PEM.
America's oldest continuously running art museum. Lots of American art, folk art, maritime art, as well as a great poster collection, and the famous Chinese House. Rotating exhibits seasonally.
Take in over 250,000 ft of gallery space showcasing everything from contemporary art to ancient relics. Our fave? The Yin Yu Tang House, a 19th century Chinese home relocated right inside the museum!
Take a day trip from Boston to check out their collection of American folk art.
Amazing pieces from Japan & China as well as maratime art. The gift shop is full of beautiflu purses & scarves.
Wow! This place is amazing!
Check out the Yin Yu Tang home if you can. Absolutely amaaaaaazing!! The fact that they relocate something like this blows my mind. Gorgeous.
Amazing museum, really liked the old boat artifacts

Underrated, the atrium is a great place for a quick lunch
552 original documents pertaining to the Salem witch trials of 1692 have been preserved and are still stored by the Peabody Essex Museum.
Unbelievable Dutch and Flemish art exhibit - make sure to grab a magnifying glass on the way in! And the Chinese House is definitely worth the extra $5!!!
Visited on a Saturday in October and admission was free! They have a lot of awesome collections. Check them out!
Beyond Human exhibit, is fantastic!!
Impressionist on the Water is a must see. Several Money's that are breathtaking.
If you like paintings of ships, you'll like most of the galleries here!
I love this place and come just to kill time sometimes. There is always something new to look at and old favorites to revisit. Plus if you're a Salem Resident or SSU student you get in free!
The cafe serves a mean New England Clam Chowder.
Surprisingly great coffee go have some while you're waiting to get into the Chinese house
Lots of hands on activities for kids, as well as the chinese house!
Saw the Hat Saw the Hat Exhibition, Friday, Feb 1, 2013...The Fabrigie Exhibit will be there in Apl
Beautiful place, the exhibit of Chinese imported art is particularly fascinating, highly recommended.
Several additional buildings/historic homes are part of the museum, too--ask about visiting them!
One of the best museums I've been to. Just make sure when you see the sign that no cameras allowed/no pics. They don't catch you. LOL. :0x
Great place to come people watch
See the Jerry Uelsmann exhibit before it leaves.
A tiny sculpture of a monkey wrestling an octopus? I love art.
Try the Caesar salad at the Atrium Cafe.
With the best gift shop around, the PEM offers live entertainment, films, interactive family tours & many opportunities to be creative. Free to Salem residents...almost worth moving to Salem for!
A short train ride from Boston, and a nice drive by car -- this museum is not to be missed.
Always so many things to see there
