The Penn Museum joins with the Consulate of Mexico in Philadelphia and the Mexican Cultural Center in a celebration of Día de los Muertos as we honor departed ones through music, dance, and art. The centerpiece of the afternoon is a traditional ofrenda (altar) created for the celebration.

After 5 PM, the festival continues outdoors with entertainment, cash bar, and dancing. Family-friendly activities (1 PM -5 PM) are free with paid Museum admission (and free to Members). Garage parking is available at Garage 7 (South Street and Convention Avenue,) the Penn Tower Parking Garage (adjacent to the Museum) and other local pay lots.
