Plan a class visit to archives.
Classes are invited to visit the Penn Museum's extensive archival collection, which includes thousands of documents, photographs, prints, and films related to the Museum's history and collections. The staff of the Penn Museum Archives is happy to discuss topics pertaining to the history of the museum, our excavations, and our holdings. A visit would include a summary of what your students might expect to find regarding your specific topic, and how to conduct archival research.
The Archives are accessible Monday to Friday, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm. To request a visit to the Archives with your class, please fill out the Request Form at least three weeks in advance of your potential visit.
