Sponsor a School Group
To help make our world-class collection more accessible for K-12 students attending underserved schools, the Penn Museum has created the Sponsor a School Group program which asks our corporate neighbors to underwrite free class trips for local school groups. Free visits include bus transportation assistance, a docent-guided tour of the galleries focusing on a cultural topic of the school's choosing, and related International Classroom speaker presentations and activities. A $1,000 contribution will help to underwrite a trip for a group of 50 - 60 students, plus teachers and chaperones.
