The Peabody Essex Museum wants everyone who visits to be able to celebrate art and culture in a variety of ways, and with all of their exhibits, programs and activities, we think they’ve succeeded!
This popular Salem museum is filled with a variety of exhibitions, each of which cover something different. You see kids, art isn’t just paintings! Nope! Art can be photography, it can be sculptures, it can be pottery, and it can even be film!
Each of the exhibits at the Peabody Museum will introduce kids to a whole new range of art and culture – from Chinese and Japanese culture and history, to Native art of the Northwest Coast.
There are always new exhibits at the museum, so when you go back there is a good chance to seeing something new!
We haven’t even started telling you about the collection at the museum yet! The Peabody Essex Museum has a collection of pretty incredible works that date back all the way to the 1700s. There are photos, paintings, textiles, architectures, and sculptures. Kids can experience art from Asia, America, Africa, and even Native American and Oceanic.
The museum has brought art from all over the world straight to them!
Did you know that they have 1.8 million works? Now, that’s going to take you more than one family day out to enjoy isn’t it!
Let’s not forget about the programs just for families! Have you ever wanted to fold an origami penguin, or meet a live wolf? Perhaps you want to make your own finger puppets! Well, at the museum there are plenty of ways to have these fun adventures!
Gallery Spot is on select Saturdays where you can just drop in and have fun learning about art. Or on weekends Drop In Art Making lets you go and create if you’re feeling inspired! How fun! Interactive fun, story trails…the list goes on!
Go on…have an amazing art time in Salem!
