Drinks with the Sphinx
Join us for a bit of grownup fun — it's like "40 Winks with the Sphinx" without the sleepover (it is a work night, after all). Show off your moves during a belly dancing workshop, test your knowledge in a "What in the World" object trivia game, and more. Also take a flashlight tour and explore the galleries!
Stay in the Valentine's Day spirit with this foray into ancient Roman romance. Learn about some lusty customs of civilizations in antiquity during a humorous talk by Dr. Brian Rose, Curator-in-Charge, Penn Museum Mediterranean Section. Spice up the night further with a guided tour of suggestive objects in the galleries and a Roman inspired show by The Whiskey Kittens Cabaret Burlesque Comedy Sideshow. Enjoy drinks from a cash bar.
Explore the art of tattoos and body modification. Hear from Penn Museum Williams Director, Dr. Julian Siggers, comparing techniques used for hundreds of years with the modern methods of today. Enjoy performances from Olde City Sideshow! Break up the workweek, network with other young professionals, enjoy drinks at a cash bar, and experience the Penn Museum's collections like never before.
