Teaching and learning at the Penn Museum has the potential to move beyond content knowledge to address and engender the fundamentals of learning. The unique and compelling artifacts in our galleries inspire curiosity, when a student is driven to learn more about an object or a culture that he or she has never before encountered. Objects inspire a multitude of questions- what was this used for? Who made it? How did it come to be in the Museum?- and are an ideal means by which to pursue further inquiry.
