    Such a great museum. Great exhibits and tons of variety. Architecturally a great building. Was able to see an Ansel Adams exhibit a few years back. Great gift shop too.

    I spontaneously visited the Peabody Essex Museum over the holidays when I took a surprise trip to Salem while visiting friends in Boston. I was thoroughly impressed. We spent a long time visiting all the exhibits we could and I truly enjoyed all of them. The diversity of style, medium, and history of the works displayed was epic and the overall atmosphere was beautiful and more metropolitan than I expected. It is not the cheapest place to visit in the area, but the quality and uniqueness of what you will experience and see is worth every penny.

    I live in the city so I am used to the Museum of Fine Arts or big museums like the Field in Chicago. This is the little museum that could… it offers many exhibits in a small area. It is known as a Maritime museum with many exhibits that involve maritime paintings or large merchant ship models. The coolest thing about the Peabody Essex is that it has a complete 200 hundred year old chinese house that they shipped into the museum. It is known as the “Yin Yu Tang” house and is quite amazing. It is a tactile way to see and feel the architecture of a period home of this chinese merchant. Tickets are 15 bucks!

    Many new, exciting, interactive exhibits since last visit !Animals and Art was a huge hit with my 6 yr old grandson! The Insect Museum especiallycleverly fascinating ! Being part of the exhibit drew patrons together who may never had acknowledged each other ! Kudos !Unfortunately, I was not told on entry to the Museum that tickets for the Finch installation werenecessary……..so it was a disappointing and frustrating journey up to the third floor, and down to the ticket desk to find out that it was sold out for the day .Love the new changes, even the older exhibits feel new.Thank you for the Sketch book in the Dutch Room ! A wonderful idea !We will be back….earlier in the day 🙂
