Guided Public Tours

Journey through the museum’s galleries for about one-hour with a volunteer docents or Penn Graduate Guides. Topics range from gallery-specific explorations, like deep dives into Egypt, the Middle East, or China, and also themed tours like Highlights of the Penn Museum or Monsters, Myths, and Legends. In addition to the longer public tours, visitors may join Daily Digs, 15-minute object spotlight talks that are included with admission.

No advance registration is required and programs are included with regular museum admission. See the list of scheduled programs below. Visitors meet for these tours in the Main Entrance on the Main Floor, behind the Sphinx.
