The Museum is open Thursday-Sunday, with 6 daily hour-long time slots beginning at Noon. The last time slot is 4pm. Due to a town mandate, masks and proof of vaccination are required for entrance. Admission for members remains free, but we prefer if you reserve tickets online prior to arrival.

Here’s an overview of the changes we’ve implemented:

  • Admission Capacity and Timed Entry: Guests purchase their tickets in advance for an hour-long time slot. PAAM Members receive free admission, but must make an online reservation in advance.
  • PPE: Due to a town mandate, all visitors are required to show proof of vaccination and wear a mask.
  • Enhanced Cleaning Procedures:  All touchpoints are sanitized throughout the day. There are sanitizers throughout the building.
  • Physical Distancing: Guests are encouraged to maintain a distance of at least 6-feet from guests outside of their own party.
  • Contact Reduction: We have decreased our touchpoints by propping doors and installing foot door pulls. The bathrooms are closed to the general public and are only available for ticketed guests.

PAAM is a fully accessible facility with two handicapped-accessible parking spaces located on Commercial Street in front of the museum and one space in PAAM’s private lot, located on Bangs Street. A parking placard is required for these spaces. A wheelchair is available for guests at the front desk. Restrooms are equipped with handicapped-accessible stalls.

The Museum School is located on the second floor of the Museum and can be accessed via the school entrance on Bangs Street. An elevator to the museum school is available.

  • Restrooms equipped with baby-changing stations
  • Coat room available
