University Of PennsylvaniaCurrently Open [Closes at 07:00 pm]
Visit this place for the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology alone even if you’re seeing nothing else – the mummies, sphinx and sarcophagi are all good crowd pullers. Established by Benjamin Franklin, the University and its beautiful campus abound with sights and activities Visit the library, the bookstore the theatre, the science centre, the vet school; take in the pretty pathways, beautiful statues and gardens; and interact with the many students that are usually eager to show people around their pride and joy. You can even sit in on the classes if you’re visiting – no need to make appointments; simply arrive early, let the professor know and take a seat. You can’t do this in summer though. If you truly want to know the best places though, go to the U Penn website and check out their self-guided visit brochure, where the sights and culture of the place are detailed for the best experience.

Strange people over there. I regret my visit. I wish I did not have to know that my diploma came from there. Not like the old days where knowledge was the most important. Not sure where the American college system is heading, but it looks to be going down hill to me.
I no longer work at Penn. Working there was a great experience and prepared me for my next job. The fellow who said you need to know someone there to get hired doesn't know what they are talking about. I'm a minority and I got hired without knowing a danged soul.
It's so beautiful and organized. The meetings were really well organized and the people are super friendly. The location is close to most things. Loved that!
Worst place to visit in case of emergency... thaws will make you wait 6 hours before getting to the back and 6 hours before being released if your situation is manageable from home. Please by all means.. skip this hospital any chance you get..
Awesome library. Awesome instructors. I think Penn can beat Harvard. Come and study here, you will not regret.
