There’s been some uncertainty in the status of The Penn Museum’s Secrets of the Silk Road exhibition, so we wanted to clarify what the deal is.
From now to March 15, Secrets of the Silk Road will be presented with the original artifacts and mummies from China for a limited time only.
From March 17-28, the exhibition will continue with all the artifacts but without the two headlining mummies: an infant wrapped in a blue bonnet and burgundy woolen shroud nearly 2,000 years ago, and the nearly 4,000-year-old “Beauty of Xiaohe” woman.
This weekend is the perfect opportunity to visit the exhibition; save room for lunch at the Pepper Mill Cafe, which is serving Silk Road-inspired food.

When: Now-March 28
Where: Penn Museum, 3620 South Street
Cost: Adults $22.50, Seniors (65+)/Military $18.50, Children (6-17)/Students $16.50
