Open to all, the Penn Museum is home to remarkable objects and powerful stories that emerge from its excavations and research across the world. Connect with the cultures of Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the Mediterranean, from the very first cities of the Middle East to the pharaohs of ancient Egypt; from early Mexico to the lives of Native American communities today. Experience the richness of the ancient past, gain an understanding of our shared humanity, and find your own place in the arc of human history.

Mesopotamia: Journey to the City by Penn Museum

Global Voyagers: Explore the World!

Vividly explore the ‘cradle of civilization’ through artifacts from the earliest settlements, temples, and royal tombs. Learn how ancient Mesopotamian societal practices gave rise to the world’s first cities through investigation of Penn’s archaeological digs in the Middle East. Investigate some of Mesopotamia’s innovations: the writing system, law code, and professionalization of labor. Through interactive conversations, students discover how these ancient cities, in many ways, are not very different from their own.
