About Us

The Penn Museum transforms understanding of the human experience.

Founded in 1887, the Penn Museum has always been one of the world’s great archaeology and anthropology research museums, and the largest university museum in the United States. With roughly one million objects in our care, the Penn Museum encapsulates and illustrates the human story: who we are and where we came from.

Services Offered

Experienced museum educators lead students through hands-on activities and conversations that explore aspects of past cultures in our interactive workshops and gallery tours, which align with academic standards in many subjects. Learn more in the Penn Museum Trip Planner (!
