Celebrate National Archaeology Day at the Penn Museum! Bring the whole family to explore the Museum through the eyes of Indiana Jones, Hollywood’s famous archaeologist, with interactive dig sites, scavenger hunts, movies, games, and talks.
All day long, you can check out an interactive mummy table, an interactive dig site, and an obstacle course of doom! Other programs including talks on archaeology and a What in the World game show are available at various points throughout the day. Kids and families can also try their hand at craft stations, where you can make your own tomb wall or holy grail to take home!
Cosponsored by the Philadelphia Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America, this event is free with Museum admission ($12 for adults; $10 for seniors [65+] and military personnel; $8 for full-time students [with ID] and children [6-17]; and free for children under 6). Visitors wearing an Indiana Jones-style fedora receive $2 off the price of admission! For more information, call 215.898.2680.
