Penn Museum is actually the abbreviation of University of Pennsylvania Archaeology and Anthropology Museum. Don’t look at the university’s museum. This is a world-class museum, leading the way in Egyptian and Chinese collections. We made a special trip to visit for an hour and a half, tusk tusk praise.
The most important thing to go to the Penn Museum is obviously to see two of the six horses in Zhaoling.
Of course, other collections are actually very shocking. For example, there is the Code of Hammurabi, a small sphinx is placed in an exhibition hall, a Rosetta Stone and a page of Odyssey on a second century papyrus.
It’s a pity that I was too in a hurry when I went, so I could only take a look at the top ten highlights of the museum.
This is the museum of the University of Pennsylvania. If it is placed in China, it feels like the top three. The most shocking is the Egyptian collection, with some mummies and sculptures, not inferior to many national museums. In addition, there are many collections from the East, including those from China, especially each of which is a boutique, with both historical and artistic value.
Although the scale of Penn University’s humanities and art collections cannot be compared with that of the New York Metropolis, they are all the best in historical value. Don’t miss it.
