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

People across the globe have been playing games for thousands of years. Games aren’t just fun things to do, they carry important cultural meanings. Students will become amateur archaeologists and study game-related artifacts from Indigenous communities from North, Central, and South America. They’ll learn how to play different games, their cultural and religious significance, and how many continue to serve as important expressions of cultural heritage and identity today.
