This month’s PEM/PM event celebrates time travel and globetrotting through the museum's extensive collection of art from around the world. Join us for an evening of steampunk, a genre of science fiction that offers a Victorian take of what the future might look like, inspired by authors such as H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. The evening includes cocktails and conversation, art making, games, a chef tasting and demonstration by Brown Butter Bakery in Cambridge and a performance by Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band.
