Welcome to the Penn Museum online collections—here you can explore collections information, images, archival films, and more. These digital resources include cultural items and historical records that may be culturally sensitive. Some records document human remains; others may contain names, images, and recordings of deceased individuals. Records may include information or language that is outdated, offensive, or incorrect. These records are based on past collecting practices and interpretations, which may not reflect the current views of the Penn Museum.
We are constantly updating our records and encourage and welcome members of descendant communities, scholars, and others to contact us with feedback, questions, or concerns.
