A “must see” destination in the City of Philadelphia, the Penn Museum invites you to explore Ancient Egypt, Rome, Greece, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Mexico, and Central America—to transform your understanding of the human experience and find your own place in the arc of human history. Featuring a light-filled Main Entrance that shines the spotlight on the 12.5-ton red granite Sphinx of the Pharaoh Ramses II (one of the city’s top attractions since 1913), the Penn Museum houses 10,000 years of history from across the globe.
