3 Ways to Gift a Penn Museum Experience with GIVEAWAY

This post about Ways to Gift a Penn Museum Experience was sponsored by the Penn Museum in Philadelphia. We appreciate their support of Jersey Family Fun that allows us to share with families information about things to do in Philadelphia and giftable experiences in Philadelphia that we think your family may enjoy.


What’s the best way for a family to visit the Penn Museum in Philadelphia?

Funny you should ask because the University Of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Philadelphia, otherwise known as the Penn Museum offers several ways that families can have a fun Philly day trip. You may not think of the Penn Museum  as a kids museum, but our experiences have shown it really is a must-visit museum in Philly. Keep reading and then enter for a chance to win 4 tickets to the Penn Museum.


About the Penn Museum, a unique museum for kids in Philadelphia.

The Penn Museum (the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology) is dedicated to the study and understanding of human history and diversity. Founded in 1887, the Museum has sent more than 300 archaeological and anthropological expeditions to all the inhabited continents of the world. With an active exhibition schedule and educational programming for children and adults, the Museum offers the public an opportunity to share in the ongoing discovery of humankind’s collective heritage.


Look at all the ways you can gift an experience to the Penn Museum.

We slept right under the Sphinx during a 40 Winks with the Sphinx.


Make it a Family Night to Remember during a 40 Winks with the Sphinx, an epic sleepover event

Families with kids ages 6 to 12 can book an experience to remember, with a night at the Museum! 40 Winks with the Sphinx, the Museum’s popular sleepover program, invites children and their parents or adult chaperones on an overnight “expedition” of the Museum. Sleepovers run Friday evenings into Saturday! This is one AMAZING way to experience the Penn Museum. Some of our favorite family memories came from our own sleepover at a 40 Winks with the Sphinx. You can read about it in this story, 40 Winks with the Sphinx or The Night My Son Became Indiana Jones.

My son loves history and geography. This is right up his alley. It would make his winter break if we could go. He especially loves anything about ancient worlds like Egyptian Pharaohs.
