University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology
e|n Partner since September 2009
Founded in 1887, Penn Museum has collected nearly one million artifacts representing cultures from all over the world. The collection and special exhibitions are housed in a one-of-a-kind historic, eclectic and Renaissance-style building, surrounded by beautiful gardens. This university museum has big visions, and those visions include having a dynamic retail operation. Event Network was brought in by the Penn Museum as part of the early stages of the Museum’s transformation. Near term plans include a series of high-profile traveling exhibits and a greater awareness campaign; both of which will dramatically increase traffic and make for a robust retail operation going forward.
