Peabody Essex Museum, Salem Reviews

  • Super friendly front desk staff. Love the nautical part of the collection, as they have a great variety of art and time periods. Not just old or new- but all across the board a great place that had a great fashion exhibition when we visited. Location is great as you can walk around Salem after and make a day out of it.

  • Visited on a busy Saturday to see a special exhibit. The light, airy, modern space is very inviting. Had a snack in the atrium restaurant - fresh & adequate - nothing special. Two live entertainment shows during the afternoon, as well as craft demos & projects for children. The museum's core collection is eclectic and not that exciting to me, but they have a talent for putting on superb temporary exhibits to round out the visitor's experience.

  • Great museum with in-depth exhibits that showcase a wide variety of art. The atrium is gorgeous and wonderful introduction to the museum as you enter it before going off the arteries that lead to the separate exhibits. The Yin Tang house is also a treasure that you must see -- it transports you right to China. The fact that admission is free to Salem residents and teachers is also amazing and a great way for my family to take in art on our tight budget. The museum is a short walk away from other great sights and restaurants as well.

  • The exhibits were brilliant! Seriously, a fantastic visual experience. Two complaints, however; on our tour of the O'Keeffe exhibit, the tour guide began before a woman who used a wheelchair had had time to catch up to the group (she'd taken the elevator). Throughout the tour, the guide continued to entirely ignore the woman, moving ahead before everyone had a chance to see paintings and beginning new discussions before everyone could catch up. I understand that tours are limited in time and that they can be crowded, but come on. It's 2018. The museum needs to be accessable to everyone, and not just technically. Staff need to be trained to accommodate the unique needs of its guests. My second (less important complaint) was regarding the attitude of a man who worked the front of the admissions desk. He had entirely no idea what was going on in regards to tours that day, and answered my questions in a very condescending and snarky manner. The kindest and most helpful member of the staff was a young food service worker. He was seriously a refresher from the rest of the less-than-knowledgeable, abrupt staff. Way to go man, I wish I'd caught your name so that I could give you a proper shout-out. Overall, if you want to visit to independently look at art, 4 stars. If you expect excellent service from a competently trained staff, 1 star.

  • Excellent small Museum. It has some beautiful pieces of furniture from 200 years ago from some of the wealthy maritime families. The Georgia O'Keeffe exhibit was small but well done. The building itself is very beautiful and reminiscent of a ship.
