Bring your friends and family to explore the Penn Museum for FREE as part of this year’s Wawa Welcome America, the largest July 4th celebration in America!

Globe-trot in a day!

Explore our shared humanity across 10,000 years of history—from the very first cities of the Middle East to the lives of Native American communities today.

Travel through Africa, Asia, the Mediterranean, and Mexico & Central America while taking in their vibrant cultures through ancient artifacts, world wonders, and contemporary artworks. There is something for all ages, including exciting exhibitions like Ancient Food & Flavor, which unwraps the world’s oldest leftovers, and U-2 Spy Planes & Aerial Archaeology.

Unwind in our gardens

In between adventures, take a moment in our tranquil gardens and courtyards filled with lush seasonal foliage, relaxing fountains and ponds, and communal spaces to picnic and play.
