For the Indiana Jones in all of us, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, arguably the finest museum of its kind in the United States, is offering a summer packed with special guided tours, musical performances and other activities for all ages during the summer of 2014. Events and activities will include such things as Egyptian gallery tours, a Mexico and Central American gallery tour, summer night concerts, and special performances for children. This, of course, is in addition to the usual offering of galleries and exhibits always available to visitors on a regular basis.
Otherwise known as the Penn Museum, it is located at 3260 South Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104 at the intersection of Spruce Street and 33rd Street. Nearby landmarks include Franklin Field, across South Street, and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, across 34th Street.
