An afternoon of learning and fun in the Penn Museum
Knowledge and understanding come in many forms, and the Penn Museum invites you to explore how we know what we know with gallery talks and tactile activities for all ages. Try out stone tools, textiles, and ceramics in an experimental archaeology station to understand more about their use and craftsmanship. Practice your archaeological science skills with our microscopes and test samples. Study replica artifacts up close and personal with hands-on activities. Learn with our experts about their research and archaeological digs and studies and see how that research gets translated into Museum exhibitions. Challenge your newfound knowledge in a mobile, museum-wide scavenger hunt of discovery with prizes!
