Opening Celebration Weekend



The Penn Museum invites our friends and supporters to become partners in the transformation of its galleries and public spaces, making it a welcoming home for all. Naming and other recognition opportunities are offered in all of the galleries and spaces; for more information, please contact Therese Marmion or Amanda Mitchell-Boyask.

Name a Seat in the Harrison Auditorium

Be among the first to name a seat in the storied Harrison Auditorium on its reopening. For a gift of $2,500, your name (or the name of an honoree of your choice) will be installed on an elegant metal plaque on an Auditorium seat.

A grand transformation: the Penn Museum will renovate the Harrison Auditorium—including completely refurbishing the beautiful 1940s seats—so that this historic space reaches its full potential once more. Imagine what the Harrison Auditorium has witnessed in a century. Imagine what it will inspire in new generations of visitors. Name a seat, and take part in the Harrison Auditorium’s next chapter.

Lead the way: for more information about naming a seat and helping us to transform this beloved space, please contact Kristen Lauerman or call Kristen at 215.573.5251.
