Penn Museum


Showcasing 2,500 years of style and adornment through approximately 250 remarkable objects, The Stories We Wear reveals diverse human stories and demonstrates how clothing shapes and communicates identity. Examine the purpose and meaning behind what we wear as you discover a spectacular array of attire, jewelry, uniforms, regalia, and tattoos. Explore common threads woven throughout stories that transcend language, culture, and time.

Members are invited to see our new special exhibition, The Stories We Wear, before it opens to the public! On September 24, visit anytime between 4-8 pm to explore 2500 years of fashion, costume, armor, jewelry, and more at your own pace. Light refreshments will be served.
