Founded in 1887, the Penn Museum is one of the world’s leading anthropology and archaeology museums dedicated to exploring the human story: who we are and where we came from.
You’ll get to see around 1 million objects of art and artifacts from all over the world. Explore the museum’s signature galleries: Egypt (Sphinx) Gallery, Egypt (Mummies) Gallery, Africa Gallery, Canaan and Israel Gallery, China Gallery, Etruscan Italy Gallery, Greece Gallery, Rome Gallery, Japan Gallery, and the Mexico and Central America Gallery.
The Penn Museum building itself is an attraction to be seen—having undergone seven separate construction phases between 1899 and 2005, you can see a variety of different architectural influences, including the Harrison Rotunda, beautiful gardens featuring fountains, sculptures, and more. Be sure to leave yourself time to do a little exploring!
