Penn Museum began exploring 125 years ago. Thank you for helping us to continue the voyage of discovery.
In June 2010, following approval from its Board of Overseers, the Penn Museum announced Destination 2012, part of the University of Pennsylvania’s landmark $3.5 billion Making History Campaign, with a goal of $52.5 million.
In June 2010, following approval from its Board of Overseers, the Penn Museum announced Destination 2012, part of the University of Pennsylvania’s landmark $3.5 billion Making History Campaign. Destination 2012 invites stakeholders and friends to support the vision outlined by Williams Director Richard Hodges in a new, five-year strategic plan to enable the Museum to better showcase its extraordinary Collection and be a great public teaching museum for Penn’s students and faculty, the Greater Philadelphia region, and, through its website and research projects, individuals all over the world who seek a greater understanding of their cultural heritage.
Through the Destination 2012 Campaign, the Museum seeks funding for the following major initiatives:
Renovation of the West Wing of the Museum’s original, 1899 building will provide long-awaited climate control, renovated galleries, state-of-the-art conservation and teaching labs and a lovely private event space.
Revitalized program of changing exhibitions, large and small, with engaging related programming, will bring ancient and contemporary world cultures to a broad range of regional and tourist audiences.
Expanded conservation staff and internship program with enhanced facilities will restore the Penn Museum to its place as a world leader in object conservation and training and enable better stewardship of its Collection.
New student programs, including field schools, internship programs and lab-based curricular courses, will strengthen ties between the Museum and the University and put the Penn Museum at the forefront of field and laboratory-based archaeology training in the United States.
Digitized collections and research archives will make the Penn Museum’s world-renowned Collection universally accessible, through powerful databases and virtual online exhibitions.
