Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

I noticed on your website that a membership for 2 is $90. Also there is a $10 to gift shop and catalogue Hats offered if one joins by Feb 2013. How does this membership for 2 offered on this groupon differ from what is offered on your site? Is it just the reciprical to other museums? Or is this offered with all memberships to the museum? Thank you. Alice Winston

Alice W.  asked on  Nov 5, 2012

A:

Sorry for the confusion. Their Dual membership is regularly $90, but this Groupon is actually for a Sponsor-level membership, which is regularly $180 for 2 people. Since the Groupon also includes $10 toward goods at the museum shop, the total value is $190.

Sponsor-level membership includes unlimited free admission to the Peabody Essex Museum, more than 325 North American Reciprocal Museums, and more than 80 Council of American Maritime Museums, as well as complimentary PEM admission for two guests.

A:

Good morning, Alice. As Brette has already pointed out, the Groupon deal is for a higher level membership which has a number of additional benefits not offered at the Dual level. As for the Hats catalog, this is offered at the Patron ($350) level and above. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

More Questions and Answers

Q:

I was hoping to buy this as a gift. I am not a member, but I am not sure whether or not the recipient is already a member. What would happen if she is already a member? Is there a way to check ahead of time?

Marilee C.  asked on  Nov 6, 2012

A:

Thanks for the question! This Groupon is for new members only, so the gift recipient would need to be a brand-new member to redeem this Groupon. I suggest clicking here to contact their Member Services department to see if they can determine if your friend is an existing member.

Good morning, Marilee. I'd be happy to see if this person is already a PEM member. Please send his/her name and address to membership@pem.org and I will respond to you directly. Thank you.

Q:

I noticed that the expiration date of the memberhips is May 2013. Is this Deal a 6 month membership? One of your previous respondents said that this is a full year membership. Also, the membership is for two people. Is the membership for one specific person plus varying guests, or for two specific people. Does the membership include free admissiion into the Asian home within the property? Thanks for answering my three questions. Mary Ann W., Peabody, MA

Mary A.  asked on  Nov 8, 2012

A:

Good morning, Mary. May 2013 refers to the date by which you must redeem your Groupon voucher at the museum to activate your PEM membership. Once activated, your membership will be valid for 12 months. To answer your second question, a Sponsor level membership provides free PEM admission for two members and up to two guests per visit. However, you you do not have a second person in your household, you can have your membership card read "Mary A + 3 guests". And lastly, members (and their guests) receive free entrance to Yin Yu Tang.

Is this a one year membership?

Sherri D.  asked on  Nov 5, 2012

A:

Good morning, Sherri. Please note that your membership year begins when you redeem your voucher at the museum. So if you purchased it today and decided to redeem it next month, your membership year would begin in December.
