Plan a class visit to archives.
Unearth Historical Documentation
Classes are invited to visit the Penn Museum's extensive archival collection, which is home to the Museum’s excavation and expedition records, administrative documents, film archives, photograph and drawing collections, and more. The staff of the Penn Museum Archives is happy to discuss topics pertaining to the history of the museum, our excavations, and our holdings.
Please note that visits to the Archives are by appointment only and are accessible Monday to Friday, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm. To request a visit to the Archives with your class, please fill out the Request Form at least three weeks in advance of your potential visit. Please also note that there may be limited accessibility during various phases of the Building Transformation, so please check with Archives staff when you make your appointment about accessibility.”
