Making Workshops

Hosted by the Academic Engagement Department at the Penn Museum, Making Workshops are Museum-sponsored events that encourage Penn undergraduate and graduate students to become more familiar with the Museum’s collection by utilizing their tactile senses. These events provide a fun and educational setting to promote social interaction and engage students with the Museum’s collection. Take home something related to the objects or theme of the night! Dinner is always provided.

Registration opens a month before the event.
