Penn Museum

We have been reading Mystery of History Vol 1. I know I have learned quite a bit. I love the chronological approach and the integration of biblical history with what else was happening in the world. Last year in CC we learned the history timeline and so we have begun to learn more about the events. We have also begun work on a timeline notebook with the goal being that we will keep filling this in for the years to come and give us a good reference for history.

The Penn Museum was one of the things that was on the top of our list of things to do. One reason is because of the extensive ancient history section that it has and this year we are studying ancient history.  We finally did it a few weeks ago of course after my husbands Penn ID card has expired so we had to buy tickets for all of us. It was worth it.

We were very impressed with the Egyptian display.

I was a bit surprised that J was a bit hesitate to go into the area with the mummies.

There were also some displays from ancient Rome and Greece. We had not quite reached that part of our study. The museum was a great supplement to our ancient history.
