A circle of people clinking glasses together in a toast.


Main Entrance - Penn Museum

Drinking together has been a tradition for thousands of years. Let us be your designated driver as you explore how our ancestors partied like it was 5000 BCE. Join our archaeologists to discover ancient beer and wine recipes, learn about modern day brewing techniques, and uncover ways that drinking culture has changed over time.

At the tour’s end, grab a beer from the Museum Café and join us for a taste test of Flying Fish Exit 3 Blueberry Braggot—a beer that tastes very similar to an ancient recipe discovered by a Penn biomolecular archaeologist.

Tour begins at the Main Entrance.
