The recently transformed Peabody Essex Museum, located at the corner of Liberty and Essex streets in downtown Salem, Massachusetts, presents art and culture from New England and around the world. The museum's collections are among the finest of their kind, showcasing an unrivaled spectrum of American art and architecture (including four National Historic Landmark buildings) and outstanding Asian, Asian Export, Native American, African, Oceanic, Maritime, and Photography collections. In addition to its vast collections, the museum offers a vibrant schedule of changing exhibitions and a hands-on education center. The museum campus features numerous parks, period gardens, and 24 historic properties, including Yin Yu Tang, a 200-year old house that is the only example of Chinese domestic architecture in the United States.

For hours and admission fees please see the Museum's website.

The Peabody Essex Museum produced an online presentation titled Indian Market: New Directions in Southwestern Native American Pottery to accompany a 2002 exhibition. The "Indian Market" segment describes the annual event in a video interview with Sicangu Lakota artist and psychiatrist Thomas Haukass.
