University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology
Great Lectures Series at the Penn Museum

Stuff. It fills our homes, offices, minds, and bodies. It can be defined as a collection of belongings, ideas, expertise, and much, much more. With roughly one million objects in our care, the Penn Museum is filled with great stuff. The 2018–2019 Great Lecture Series explores select objects and ideas housed within our Museum. Join us on the first Wednesday evening of each month at 6:00 pm, October through June, and see if we know our stuff!
