Drag box to select area
Located along Salem's pedestrian walkway, The Peabody Essex Museum's glass-fronted entry offers passers-by a glimpse into the light filled atrium, a piece of art in its own right. The museum's collections aim to integrate art and culture, and include photography and architecture, as well as Korean, Japanese, Indian, Native American, maritime, oceanic, Asian export and American decorative art. One of the museum's most prominent and well known features is its 200-year-old Chinese House, called Yin Yu Tang. The house was deconstructed in China and rebuilt brick by brick in its current location. The Art and Nature Center is another space that is rather unique for an art museum. This area is devoted to bright colors, and tactile and interactive exploration, making the museum a great place to bring the whole family.
