World Culture Days at the Penn Museum

Get ready to celebrate the vibrant cultures of the world represented in our region! The Penn Museum’s popular annual World Cultures series returns this year, with a new name and a fun new twist. Join us as we celebrate diverse cultures at festivals that feature an eclectic mix of activities, including performance, art-making, storytelling, tours, demonstrations, workshops, film screenings, and more! This year, we’re adding an evening social experience. Bring the whole family during the day or come linger into twilight with your friends for extended celebrations and happy hour festivities!

Family-friendly activities are free with Museum admission (and free to Members).
