A New Way To PMA

PMA360 introduces new and unexpected ways to engage with the museum. Performers, artists, scholars, and creative thinkers —PMA staff and featured guests alike—present exclusive gallery experiences, from tours and games to craftmaking and a wide variety of musical, theatrical, and art-based performances.

It's a creative, sometimes surprising, thematic approach, emphasizing that there are endless possibilities for connecting with art. Bring a friend, meet people, learn something new, and have a drink. It’s always free, and always fun.
