Adopt an Artifact Today!

Adopt an ArtifactNow you can help the Penn Museum care for its Collections and get a great gift at the same time with our newly launched Adopt an Artifact Program. Just in time for the holidays! Penn Museum invites visitors to explore the wonders of history and culture from civilizations around the world through an extraordinary collection of nearly one million artifacts – objects created by humans for every day or sacred use. Just one percent of these artifacts are on public display at any one time, but the rest still need proper housing and care. Now you can help the Penn Museum to properly care for all the artifacts in its collection by “adopting” one of your own favorites. All funds raised from adoptions will support the preservation, storage, and management of our artifacts.
