What better way to learn about the culture of another place than to speak to someone who grew up there? Through the Global Guides Program, the Penn Museum offers virtual tours led by Philadelphians who grew up in countries around the world. In addition to sharing historical information about the artifacts on display, the guides combine personal experiences and stories to interpret objects from their countries of origin. This interesting virtual tour takes place in the Asia Galleries and will feature China.

Join the crew for a digital journey to ancient China! See some of the most ancient writings of early emperors, and decipher their meaning. Uncover the legacy of Silk Road merchants and traders. Discover a history encapsulated in beautiful artwork and inspiring monuments. These virtual tours are highly interactive, with built-in polls and quizzes to keep you guessing till the very end. Your fellow voyagers will help you explore along the way!

Registrants will recieve a confirmation email with the ZOOM link prior to the event.
