The Penn Museum’s galleries, and how our collections tell the stories of the human experience, are central to furthering our mission and serving the public. The Museum is a civic treasure and a vital destination for visitors because of world-class exhibitions that complement our extraordinary signature galleries.
The Penn Museum has established the Director’s Exhibitions and Galleries Fund, through which its friends can support the vital regeneration of our signature galleries, or our changing exhibitions program, with a gift of any size.
Your support for the Director’s Exhibitions and Galleries Fund provides the flexibility for short-term gallery interventions that improve the visitor experience such as artifact rotation, improved lighting, signage, casework, and complementary didactic materials in print and electronic media; major renovation projects including complete reinstallation; and changing exhibitions that present the Museum’s own collections in new light, or offer visitors an opportunity to see exceptional materials from outside.
Your organization or corporation can support the Penn Museum’s mission in many ways, from sponsorships to in-kind contributions. Our corporate partners benefit from being associated with the Museum’s significant resources—vast, unique, and impressive collections that we have largely excavated ourselves, committed curators and professional staff of the highest caliber, and the benefits that come with being part of one of the world’s great universities.
