Teens visit free Tuesday-Friday, 3:00-5:00 pm and all day Saturday-Sunday, 10:00 am-5:00 pm. Walk up and mention birthdate, zip code, and the school you attend. Interactive exhibits and weekend gallery tours dig deeper into the history and vibrant stories within the Penn Museum's world-renowned collections. Get up close with artifacts and learn something new about our shared humanity, or experience anthropology, archaeology and the Penn Museum in a new way through programs developed specifically for you.

Summer Interns

June 19 - August 16, 2024*


The Penn Museum is able to host a small cohort of paid teen interns through the Bloomberg Arts Internship (BAI) Program each summer. BAI interns work directly with a specific Museum department (Conservation, Marketing, Exhibits, etc.) to gain valuable hands-on experience, while also receiving engaging professional development and college readiness workshops from BAI staff.

For more information about the program and how to apply visit the Bloomberg Arts Internship website.
