    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.
