Bring your natural curiosity and craftiness into FREE live learning sessions by Penn Museum educators!

Humans have been creating imaginary monsters for thousands of years. Some of them are terrifying creatures while others are bringers of good fortune. Often ancient peoples combined different animal parts to form one powerful beast. Students will study ancient monsters from across the globe, identify the real-world animals that inspired them, and design their own monsters.

Recommended Materials: Blank sheet of paper and a writing utensil.
