Museum campus map

The Museum Library is in the middle of floor 3 of the Academic Wing.

From the East Entrance (sometimes referred to as the Group or Kress entrance): After checking in at the Visitors' Services desk, use the East Elevator behind the desk to go from floor 1 to floor 3 in the Academic Wing. Go straight as you exit the elevator.

Until November 2019, the Main (Kamin) entrance to the Museum is under renovation. During this time, visitors to the Penn Museum can enter through the Courtyard Entrance (also known as the Trescher entrance in the Stoner Courtyard, which is the larger of the two courtyards with the large, round fountain) during Museum Hours, 10AM-5PM, Tuesdays-Sundays. After checking in at the Visitors' Services desk at the entrance, you can continue straight through Mosaic hall to reach the Academic Wing and turn left to find the East Elevators. Alternatively, you can go to the galleries on the Penn Museum's Upper Level and access the Academic Wing through either the upper Egypt gallery or the Rome gallery, as shown on the 3rd floor plan.
