This museum must be blown up. I didn't expect it to be so good, and it wouldn't be particularly tiring inside. It is some of the finest cultural relics in various fields. It's really breathtaking. It was shocking.
Very cool museum with many shocking mummies! Many large artworks have enough space for everyone to visit. There is also the second largest crystal ball in the world, in the beautiful silver waves. Lots of impressive exhibits and wonderful introductions. You can visit it in a few hours.
It is not a free attraction. Ctrip can book a discounted fare for around US$15. There are many precious ancient human bones and fossils excavated from all over the world, but they are all precious and well protected.
A university hides a top museum, reflecting the world-leading side of American universities. The Penn Museum (University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology) is famous in the archaeological world. I am surprised that it was established as early as 1887. I am also surprised that it has a collection of 1 million pieces. I am even more surprised that the dome exhibition hall in the museum center is left with Chinese cultural relics. In many aspects such as ancient bronzes, tomb stone carvings, Buddhist sculptures and temple murals, Penn is a leader in overseas museums and has led the collection of Chinese art in North America. The Chinese academic circles in North America even invented the term "Chinese Rotunda", which specifically refers to the art treasures collected under the main dome of the Penn Museum. Please forgive my vulgarity, love shining jewellery more than the surrounding Buddha statues. Turning around the small watermelon big crystal ball placed in the middle of the hall, the reflection of the scenery opposite is reflected through the crystal ball, which is magical and interesting, no wonder Cixi loves it so much. For offering and rewarding, I also choose "playing reward". The most noticed exhibits by Chinese people are the two sacred horses from the Zhaoling Tomb of Emperor Taizong of Tang Dynasty. The Saluzi and Fist of Fist on display in the Stele Forest Museum in Xi’an, my country, are replicas made of plaster and cement. These two heavyweight cultural relics are purchased by Penn University from the multinational antique dealer Lu Qinzhai. The Egyptian collection of the Penn Museum is considered to be one of the best in the world. The collection contains a large number of statues, mummies and reliefs, the most famous The granite sphinx of Ramses II weighing 13 tons, the tower in its collection, is very eye-catching. Tickets are 15 dollars for adults; 13 dollars for 65 and over; 10 dollars for 6-17 years old; free for under 5 years old. (There is a discount during the summer vacation, the ticket is 10 dollars when I go) * Visiting time, at least 1.5 hours. Love art, more than 2 hours.
Great museum! The treasure of the town hall is moving
The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Humanity Penn Museum (University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology) is famous in the archaeology world class museum. This museum knows very little and is highly recommended. I was surprised that it was founded in 1887, that it had a million pieces of art, and that the dome hall in the center of the museum was left with Chinese artifacts. In the middle of the hall is a large crystal ball of the little watermelon that Queen Cixi loves. On both sides of the hall are two huge murals, from the Guangsheng Temple in Hongdong County, Shanxi Province, which are the same as the giant pharmacist's picture in the Metropolitan Museum of New York, which is a good illustration of the museum's high level of collection. The most famous exhibits by the Chinese are two marvelous horses from the Zhaoling Tomb of Taizong in Tang Dynasty. The Pennsylvania Museum is considered one of the best collections in the world, with a large collection of statues, mummies and reliefs, the most famous of which is the collection of its towers, the 13-ton granite sphinx of Ramses II, which is very eye-catching. We also saw a lot of mummies, even kitten mummies, a few pieces of mummies are peeled off display, also an eye-opening. The archaeological repair laboratory, through the glass can see the restoration work, there are a few mummies. But I still feel permeated, and I didn't look at the pictures to explain if the excavation is restored. On the ground floor, a special hall was set up to restore some Egyptian temples and sphinxes of the town hall treasures. How to get, how to move, how to set up a home in this museum in Philadelphia, there are detailed picture introductions. Going during the summer, half price, $10. So worth it
