We've got some big news: beginning on April 11, 2018, we've changed our admission policy to offer free, unlimited admission to everyone age 21 and under.

All visitors age 21 and under now receive free admission automatically when they visit the PMA, and young people or their guardians can also increase their level of engagement by signing up for the Susie Konkel Pass*, which provides the holder opportunities to attend special events including select free screenings of PMA Films, ways to stay up to date on museum happenings, and more.

* Please note: Anyone 13 years old or younger must be signed up by their parent or guardian only. Please call 207-699-4872 to sign up.

"IT’S MY HOPE THAT CHILDREN, TEENS, AND YOUNG ADULTS ALIKE WILL DISCOVER THE MANY WAYS THAT ART APPRECIATION CAN ENRICH THEIR LIVES, AND ALSO FEEL INSPIRED AND EMPOWERED TO SHARE THEIR VOICES WITH THE WORLD. I’M INCREDIBLY GRATIFIED TO HELP THE PMA SHARE ITS WONDERFUL COLLECTION WITH CHILDREN FAR AND WIDE." - SUSIE KONKEL


Free admission for everyone age 21 and under, provided by the generosity of Susie Konkel.

The Susie Konkel Pass reflects the collective passion and dedication of the PMA and Konkel to widely share the power of art to transform lives and offer all youth access to lasting arts experiences. Additionally, Konkel and the museum envision that removing admission costs will result in freedom at the PMA for young people and their families as a whole, including freedom for teens and young adults to use the museum as a safe and inspirational hang-out spot; freedom for low-income families to explore the arts and culture regardless of the economic hurdles they face; freedom for college and university students to use the PMA as a place to study, relax, and engage; freedom for new Mainers to immediately feel a part of their community, to feel represented and respected, and to express themselves in an inclusive environment; and freedom for parents to have more opportunities to enrich their children’s lives, supplement their growth and education, and set them on the path for a lifetime of arts appreciation.

The PMA’s commitment to broadening its audiences and the people it serves has been a top priority in recent years, and the Susie Konkel Pass is a natural step in that progression. Together, the PMA and Konkel hope to establish the PMA as an indispensable resource for future generations.

13 & UNDER? Please have parent or guardian call 207-699-4872 to sign up.
