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.

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.

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!

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.

Untold Stories

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

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.
