Destination Egypt!
Join the crew at the Penn Museum for a digital journey to Egypt. Examine the art of the pharaohs to decipher their ancient codes of communication. Discover what mummies don’t take with them to the afterlife, and follow along with an ancient story that explains why mummies are wrapped. Your fellow voyagers will help you explore along the way!

Home to over a million extraordinary artifacts and archaeological finds from Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the Mediterranean, the Penn Museum has been uncovering our shared humanity across continents and millennia since 1887. In bridging archaeology, the study of objects made by humans, with anthropology, the science of humanity, we chart a course for finding one’s own place in the arc of human history.

The Museum is dedicated to telling powerful stories that emerge from excavations and research across the world. And nowhere else in the Western Hemisphere will you be greeted by a 3000-year-old, 15-ton Egyptian sphinx! To learn more about the Penn Museum click here -
