Entrance of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, also known as the Penn Museum.

Open to all, the Museum is home to remarkable objects and powerful stories that emerge from its extraordinary expeditions across the world.

Discover the cultures of Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the Mediterranean, from the very first cities of the Middle East to the kings of ancient Egypt; from prehistoric Mexico to the lives of Native American communities today.

The Museum is a place for everyone to explore who we are and where we came from. Whether in our galleries or through our online Digital Penn Museum, experience the mystery of the ancient past, gain an understanding of our shared humanity, and find your own place in the arc of human history.
