Young Friends Program

Join the Penn Museum Young Friends to receive invitations to exciting events designed specifically for young professionals and graduate students, PLUS all of the exciting benefits of regular Penn Museum Membership.

The Young Friends of the Penn Museum is a group of active members ages 21 to 45, with a mission to raise awareness of the Penn Museum among the area’s young professionals and graduate students; help to attract new young members to the Penn Museum; and to support and promote the Penn Museum’s mission through a variety of social, educational, and fundraising activities.

Past events have included scavenger hunts through the Museum's galleries, beer and tequila tastings, lively Halloween and Valentine's Day-themed discussions, and much more.

See our list of upcoming PM @ Penn Museum Young Professional events!
