The Penn Museum has been collecting “Great Stuff” for 130 years, and, from the start it has created Great Architecture to showcase its rich collections and to reflect rapidly changing thinking about object display. In this month’s installment of the Great Lecture Series, Ann Brownlee, Associate Curator, Mediterranean Section, takes us back to the 1890s, when the Museum turned to a talented team of Philadelphia’s young “Queen Anne” superstars– Wilson Eyre, Frank Miles Day, Walter Cope, and John Stewardson–to create a master plan and begin construction of a vast new building that could never be filled and was never finished.

Admission: $10 per lecture; Members, $5. Space is limited; advance online reservations strongly suggested
