On behalf of the Learning Programs Department, welcome to the Penn Museum! We are delighted to share the Penn Museum’s world-class collection with you through meaningful, interactive learning experiences.
All of our workshops, tours, programs and resources are designed to complement, enrich, and extend classroom learning. Our unique offerings integrate a variety of curricular guidelines, including the Common Core, local, state, and national standards; they also correlate to STEM and STEAM learning and 21st Century Skills.
What’s more, these opportunities connect learners to a global context, foster critical thinking, and draw correlations between the ancient and modern worlds. They offer different entry points to topics for visual, audio, and kinesthetic learners and also introduce museum literacy skills—how to learn and function in a museum setting. So please bring your whole class— all are welcome!
The Penn Museum has many opportunities for members of the Penn community to learn and to contribute to our own educational mission. Admission for Penn faculty, staff and students is, of course, free. We welcome all to come to the Museum to enjoy the historic building and grounds which now have wireless connectivity in most galleries and gardens.
