PECO Family Jams

While PMG is closed for the winter, PECO Family Jams will be offered as virtual events. 

PECO Family Jams are PMG’s one-of-a-kind, family-oriented programs, featured every second Sunday of the month between NOON and 4:00 PM.

All PECO Family Jam programs are completely free and no reservations are required, but visitors must still purchase museum admission tickets. Tickets are timed and often sell out. Purchase your tickets online here.
