Penn Museum
We finally got to visit the Penn Museum. So much to see and do. The halls of the Penn Museum have several galleries: Egypt, Middle East, Mexico & Central America, Asia, Greece, Etruscan and Native American As well. The exhibits were excellent, I loved being able to read all the information. You can literally be there for 5 hours and still not get to see it all. The artifacts displayed are top notch and they obviously tell the story of these great civilizations. I know I will definitely be back because I did not get to see it all. If you are in Philadelphia and you have several hours, I highly recommend a visit to this museum.

Impressive Collection and Good Exhibits on Antiquity
Sep 2021
Great museum of Anthropology and Archaeology! Very impressive collections and descriptions, often of aspects of ancient life that I have not always (or possibly ever) seen in similar museums of antiquity, such as connecting mummies to health problems commonly faced by Ancient Egyptians.

If you enjoy learning about antiquity in Middle East, the Mediterranean, the Far East, the Americas, or Africa, you'll thoroughly enjoy this!

And yes, the parking situation is terrible right now, but there is a nearby parking garage that can be navigated without too much trouble (hopefully).

Horrible Parking
Jul 2021
The Museum has a large collection of antiquities and is very interesting. Unfortunately, two of the exhibits were closed when we visited - but no reduction in the price of admission.
There is a parking garage adjacent to the museum. Because of a lack of adequate signage and the immense amount of construction in the whole area, it is virtually impossible to find the entrance to the garage. We spent 30 minutes circling the block looking for it. And for the privilege, you pay $17.

Definitely worth it if you are interested in art and artifacts from ancient Egypt, Greece and Italy, Mesopotamia, Asia,
Jun 2021
We where not expecting it going in but it turned out the CANAAN & ANCIENT ISRAEL GALLERY exhibit turned out to be our favorite. There focused galleries are:
Canaan
Isreal
Etruscan Italy
Greece
Rome
Arian
Egypt
Native American
Middle East
Sphinx

So if you are interested in ancient cultures this is a place for you, Ensure you check website for visiting detail before you go. At the time we went there was construction work in the surrounding streets so the main entrance was closed so the Spruce Street entrance was a good choice. The museum is an easy trolley or bus ride from the city center.

We spend about 4-5 hours at the museum and only saw about half the exhibits. So there is lots to see for sure.

Fantastic museum devoted to the Ancient World
Feb 2021
I’ve been meaning to check out the Penn Museum for awhile and the ongoing snow/sleet situation this winter has provided ample opportunity to stay indoors. There is a lot to see at the museum, so pace yourself! It’s a huge collection (some of which are the largest in the US) covering everything from fan favorites like Egyptian art, Greco/Roman/Etruscan pieces, Middle Eastern artifacts and African art. They also have wings devoted to Asian, Native American and Central/South American (e.g. Mayan, Olmec, etc.,) artifacts. The museum has been undergoing an extensive renovation, which is certainly bringing new life to the collection and I imagine all the new touch screens will keep kids happy. Highlights for me were: The Royal Tombs at Ur (Middle Eastern gallery), seeing some of the unwrapped mummies (Egyptian gallery), the Artifact Lab (see what museum conservators do), masks & ivory carvings ( African gallery) and the jewel box space that houses the Greek pieces. Also note the exterior grounds are quite lovely and I would absolutely revisit during the warmer months to enjoy the courtyard & balcony areas.

Be aware there is construction around the museum as well, but I easily found street parking ($2.50 p/hour) two blocks away. If not, the museum website lists both garages and lots available for parking. Regarding tickets, buying timed tickets online will save you $2 off admission. I also spoke with the front desk at the Penn Museum about the joint Mutter Museum ticket. They refunded my original ticket amount and then billed me for the joint ticket.

A place that is now so modern yet you step back far into the past. The new native American is great as is always the other exhibits. Keep up the good work Penn Museum!

This is a good sized museum. I highly recommend partaking in one of the guided tours, they are very interactive, informative, and really make the whole experience. Just check the schedules. Also, book through Tripadvisor it’s the cheapest ticket around. Parking on the weekend is reasonable.
