What better way to enjoy PEM than with a group of friends or family? The museum welcomes groups of all ages at reduced rates for a minimum of 10 people. Guided and self-guided tours of the museum’s galleries are available.

The museum is wheelchair accessible with the exception of the historic houses. Yin Yu Tang: A Chinese House has limited accessibility.

Motor coach parking is available in designated spots throughout the city. Your driver may drop off and pick up your group at the museum’s main entrance at the corner of Essex and New Liberty streets.
