Celebrating You! February is Member Month

Members support all the Penn Museum’s work: from quality exhibitions and programs for the Philadelphia community, to groundbreaking archaeological fieldwork, to conservation and care of the world’s most precious pieces of cultural heritage, to school programs for students across the region. In February, we pay special tribute to their contributions and express our gratitude with exclusive extra benefits and opportunities for members.

All month: Take an extra 5% off purchases at the Museum Shop and Pepper Mill Café (that’s a full 20% and 15% off, respectively).
