This week, GBCA member HSC Builders & Construction Managers began the first phase of a major renovation of the Penn Museum – University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.

University of Pennsylvania officials want to engage more with the school’s visitors, and a large part of that will come after a major transformation of its 130-year-old museum building.

The Main Entrance Hall of the 130-year-old museum building will undergo its first renovation in nearly a century as part of what Penn President Amy Gutmann calls a “dramatic reconfiguration.”

The Penn Museum was founded in 1887, and it has nearly 1 million objects in its collections from 350 research expeditions across the world.
