Back to Top


The Penn Museum can only transform understanding of the human experience in partnership with its magnificent members and supporters. The tremendous range of teaching and research, conservation, exhibitions, and educational and public programs outlined in this Annual Report was made possible by the deeply generous support—through financial gifts, gifts of time, and gifts of collections—of the individuals recognized here.

We express our profound thanks to the donors, members, volunteers, and organizations whose support during 2017–2018 helped to make the Penn Museum a place where everyone can experience the thrill of discovery, now and for generations to come.
