Designed for teens and young adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities, Archaeology in the A.M. at the Penn Museum pairs exploring the lives of the ancients with making new friends through interactive drop-in activities. Guests can explore the new Middle East Galleries, craft their own cylinder seals, play an ancient board game with a new pal, pose at a photobooth in the fashions of the ancients, and take part in a multisensory gallery tour.

The second hour of the program features an art-making workshop, in addition to a social networking space for parents and family friends. A designated quiet space with dimmed lighting and fidget toys is accessible throughout the event, and a limited number of noise-reducing headphones are available to borrow.

Free with Museum admission, with special discounts available: ACCESS cardholders receive a discounted admission price of $2.00 per person for up to four visitors. Guests who register in advance for Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day beginning August 15 get free admission!
