Programs at the Museum for All Ages

We love telling Palmer’s story through local history and art! Beyond our exhibits, the Palmer Museum offers tours of the historic district, hosts local storytelling events, and coordinates displays of local art in the community. Throughout the year, we also offer exhibit receptions, host artist workshops, and strive to connect visitors to our culture and story.

Cyanotype Workshops

Explore the world and history of cyanotypes with one of the easiest printing techniques you can do at home without expensive equipment or a darkroom. At each workshop, select 3 photos from the historic photo collection and make 3 cyanotype prints.

Youth Art Workshops

The Palmer Museum is offering several FREE summer arts workshops for
youth. Spots are limited: sign up in advance to ensure your seat! Each class will have a specific art project that participants can complete on site during one session. We have several courses for younger children, and several for older. Each class will be held on the lawn at the Palmer Museum and Visitor Center. Classes are free, and all materials are provided.

Palmer Wine Walk

Each year, 300 lucky guests walk with us around Palmer, sampling wine and celebrating our town at participating local businesses. It is a great time to put on some walking shoes, grab a group of friends, and enjoy various wines and shopping! The Wine Walk is an annual fundraiser for the Palmer Museum.

Artist of the Week

Each Friday from June to August, come to a meet and greet with a local Valley artist and see their work on display. Ask them questions and get a first-hand experience of their art.

Sip & Shop

Shop at Peak Boutique, Northern Lilly, NonEssentials, Whimsy & Cobb Street Market and receive up to 8 pours of multiple wine options while enjoying downtown Palmer at this fundraiser for the museum. Tickets are sure to go fast, so get yours early!

Untold Stories

In the tradition of Arctic Entries and the Moth, the Museum hosts quarterly storytelling sessions, featuring seven stories of seven minutes each.

Beyond the Classroom

The Palmer Museum encourages all Valley area high school students (public, home school or alternative programs) grades 9-12 to submit the best sample of their work for consideration in our juried exhibit Beyond the Classroom. A scholarship for art classes, college courses, or art supplies will be awarded to the best achievement, as determined by the jury panel.
