Museums, quite simply, are collections of things—works of art in the care of an art museum. Curators and other museum staff display the works according to style, era, materials, and themes and offer interpretations. The objects in a collection are taken care of, preserved, and shared with the public for generations. The Portland Museum of Art has more than 17,000 works of art in its collection, including paintings, sculpture, photography, ceramics, and more.
The PMA Family Space: Playing with Collections shares objects from the PMA’s collection for your family to explore and enjoy. Look closely, be curious, and ask each other, “What is the same? And How is it different? “
