Guests to Indiana Jones Day can join in a What in the World? game show; hear real archaeology adventure stories from a world-traveling National Geographic archaeologist; take part in a hands-on program using archaeology to solve a mystery; and even touch a real ancient mummy (without a curse!). Kids and families can take a literal “run in Indy’s footsteps” in an outdoor obstacle course, make Indy-inspired arts and crafts, follow a scavenger hunt for (not so) hidden treasures, and try movie-inspired cuisine (monkey brains, anyone?).
AIA Philadelphia is a co-sponsor of this event, so please come and say hello! Details about admission (including a discount for those donning Indiana Jones apparel) and event times can be found on the Penn Museum's website. We are pleased to once again take part in National Archaeology Day; the details of other local archaeology events celebrating National Archaeology Day can be found on the website, along with the virtual Scavenger Hunt.
