New program for families with children with special needs! Join other local families at the Penn Museum for an unforgettable night of sensory-friendly fun at our Evening Expedition. For children ages 8 and older, teens, and young adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and their families, this program offers a hands-on look into the lives of the ancients through active, engaging, multisensory activities. Our evening explorers will take part in an interactive game show, enjoy an introductory lesson to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, perform adaptive yoga, make crafts, and even touch artifacts from our ancient Peruvian mummy cart! The night will culminate with a flashlight tour of select Museum galleries.

All participants should bring a flashlight for the Flashlight Expedition, and may also bring their own dinner and/or snacks. A sensory-friendly cool down space will be available to visit for the duration of the event. Please email or call Megan Becker at [email protected] or 215.573.5309 with any questions about the event.
