Progress to Date

The Destination 2012 Campaign seeks funding for a list of top priorities with a total goal of $52.5 million, for programming, staffing, building, and technological enhancements that will help the Penn Museum become a major destination by the time Making History closes in July 2012. $41 million has been committed to date, making possible the start of a major renovation of the West Wing of the Museum’s original, 1899 building; the establishment of an Academic Liaison Department, and new staff positions in the Conservation, Education and Exhibits Departments; the endowment of a position in the Museum’s American Section; the creation of the Kowalski Digital Media Center and several digital initiatives, and a wide range of research and special projects.
