Discover ancient civilizations and cultural artifacts from around the world at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. In the Egyptian Gallery, a grand 12-ton sphinx — the third largest on the planet — stands as the centerpiece of a preserved Egyptian royal palace.
Save the Dates: World Culture Days on select Saturdays and Sundays introduce families to different cultures through traditional music, games, foods, demonstrations and other activities.
