Come to the Penn Museum for a special Storytime inspired by This is the Rope: A Story from the Great Migration, the 2018 One Book, One Philadelphia selection! Through this storytime, children will explore how objects can carry stories about the past. A Museum Educator guides children on a mini tour of the Africa gallery to explore objects related to the book, with an opportunity to touch and closely examine artifacts from the Teaching Collection. This program is part of the Archaeological Adventures: Celebrate Africa Homeschool Day on this date. As part of your reserved ticket, participants may also join in art-making activities, guided tours, and hands-on workshops offered during this Archaeological Adventures Homeschool Day event.
Homeschool Day admission and program costs: $12 per child/adult.
