Description:

Designed in the 1890s, the beautiful historic building located on the University of Pennsylvania’s campus is one of Philadelphia’s premier unique venues. Penn Museum is a 300,000 square-foot gem with exterior details including glass mosaics by the Tiffany Glass Company, sculptures by Alexander Stirling Calder, and marble medallions by John Ross of New York City. Stunning event space and priceless collections make the Penn Museum an unparalleled event experience! Beautiful gardens invite you to host your wedding outdoors. Nestled between two inner gardens, and featuring ancient mosaics from Syria and Carthage, Mosaic Hall & Courtyard is a charming space ideal for smaller receptions. In the Stoner Courtyard, sculptural pieces, a cobble-stone walkway, and central marble fountain create an exquisite courtyard garden. Entertain your guests in Warden Garden, a private and elegant garden within the city featuring mosaics by the Tiffany Glass Company. Create a lasting impression in one of the museum’s breathtaking galleries. Under the breath-taking 90-foot dome, a marvel of early 20th century engineering, you’ll be surrounded by the art of ancient China in the Chinese Rotunda. Explore an underground royal Egyptian palace in the Egypt Sphinx Gallery, or marry amidst Pharaohs and Mummies in the Egypt Mummies Gallery! Excitement is boundless when you hold your wedding at Penn Museum!
