Why You Should Go...

Transform your perspective on the world with a visit to the internationally renowned University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Founded in 1887, the Penn Museum has sent more than 350 research expeditions worldwide and collected nearly one million objects from every inhabited continent. Galleries feature art and artifacts from ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Asia, North and Central America, Africa and the Mediterranean World. See an ancient Egyptian palace, mummies, and a massive red granite Sphinx; monuments of the ancient Maya; Buddhist sculptures; African masks; Native American beadwork; and Sumerian clay tablets with some of the world’s earliest writing. Watch Museum conservators at work in "The Artifact Lab: Conservation in Action." Enjoy outdoor gardens, a shop and a glass-enclosed café.
