I visited the Penn Museum on days I have come to Philly for the Penn VS Cornell games and sometimes for the Christmas holidays. The museum has three floors and can be seen in a full day or spread to two days. It is a very workable museum and the exhibitions are not overwhelming. The Penn Museum is located across the street from the football stadium (See review on TripAdvisor)

Some of the collection highlights are the Sphinx of Ramesses the Great from Memphis, Egypt 1293-1185 BC located in the Egypt (Sphinx) Gallery and the Standing Figure located in the Mexico and Central America Gallery from Veracruz, Mexico from 500-700 CE.
