The Penn Museum is a place of discoveries large and small, every day—in our galleries, labs, field sites, and classrooms. In 2017–2018, 63 Penn Museum curators and consulting scholars and Penn students were supported by the Museum in conducting research across the world, on a range of projects. The Museum also opened two special exhibitions and worked through the Penn Cultural Heritage Center to preserve global cultural heritage.
