Revitalized Penn Museum set to open its doors


This weekend, November 16 -17th, Philadelphia’s Penn Museum will open its doors to a sweeping new revitalization, allowing the public to see over 10,000 square feet of new visitor space for the first time.

hsd has been a proud partner in the reimagining of the historic institution, a unique and world-renowned landmark at the University of Pennsylvania. hsd provided design services for the project, the scope of which included the revitalization of the museum’s new main entrance hall where its famous Sphinx is now located.

Further work is still being done at the museum, with hsd engaged in ongoing development within the institution’s Ancient Egypt and Nubia Galleries. That expansion has a targeted completion date set for 2023.
