Penn Museum

Nominated for: BEST Museum

Penn Museum 3260 South St Philadelphia PA (215) 898-4000

Founded in 1887, the Penn Museum (University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology) is an internationally renowned museum and research institution dedicated to the understanding of cultural diversity and the exploration of the history of humankind. In its more than 125-year history, the Penn Museum has sent more than 300 research expeditions around the world and collected nearly one million objects, many obtained directly through its own excavations or anthropological research.

Three gallery floors feature art and artifacts from ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Central America, Asia, Africa, and the ancient Mediterranean World, and an exhibition on Human Evolution. In addition, special exhibitions, drawn both from the Museum’s own collections and brought in on loan, enrich the exhibition offerings.
