Sponsor a School Group
To help make our magnificent collections more accessible for K-12 students attending underserved schools in Philadelphia and Camden, the Penn Museum has created the Sponsor a School Group program which invites our family of individual, corporate and foundation supporters to underwrite free museum visits for local school groups. Sponsored trips include bus transportation, a docent-guided tour of the galleries focusing on a cultural topic of the school's choosing, and a related interactive workshop or International Classroom speaker presentation. A $1,500 contribution will underwrite a museum experience for a group of approximately 60 students (two classrooms), plus teachers and chaperones.
To learn more about the benefits of participating in the Sponsor a School Group program, please call (215)746-8670.
The Penn Museum has many opportunities for members of the Penn community to learn and to contribute to our own educational mission. Admission for Penn faculty, staff and students is, of course, free. We welcome all to come to the Museum to enjoy the historic building and grounds which now have wireless connectivity in most galleries and gardens.
