Archaeology in the A.M.

Saturday 22 September 2018
10:00AM - 12:00PM
Penn Museum

Kids in the Museum

Designed for teens and young adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities, Archaeology in the A.M. pairs the lives of the ancients with making new friends through interactive drop-in activities. Join us as we explore our new Middle East Galleries: craft your own cylinder seal, play an ancient board game with a new pal, pose at our photobooth in the fashions of the ancients, and take part in a multisensory gallery tour. The second hour of our program features an art-making workshop, in addition to a social networking space for parents and family friends. A designated quiet space with dimmed lighting and fidget toys is accessible throughout the event, and a limited number of noise-reducing headphones are available to borrow.

Free with Museum admission, with special discounts available:
ACCESS cardholders receive a discounted admission price of $2.00 per person for up to four visitors. Guests who register in advance for Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day beginning August 15 get free admission!
