Pop-Up Museum

December 23, 2023 – January 3, 2024

Pop-Up Museum

Included with admission.

The archives of Eastern State Penitentiary are packed with historic treasures that the public rarely sees. Thousands of artifacts are numbered and tucked carefully into museum-grade storage in the site’s administrative offices. Visitors often see photographs of these treasures, but the building’s lack of museum-quality climate control makes it impossible to exhibit the artifacts year-round. 

For a limited time only, Eastern State presents Pop-Up Museum. Pop-Up Museum features a selection of artifacts that explore a specific theme. Theme to be determined.

Please Note: The historic site will be closed to the public on December 24, December 25, January 1, and January 2.
