What's On? Global Guide Tours

The Penn Museum’s artifacts are full of stories from cultures around the world. What better way to learn about the culture and history of another place than to speak to someone who grew up there? These objects come alive through the perspectives of contemporary people living in those places today.

In this video, we meet Hadi Al-Karfawi , Yaroub Al-Obaidi, and Moumena Saradar, the Penn Museum Global Guides. They lead tours of the Middle East Galleries to share historical information about the objects on display, in addition to personal stories that help connect to their countries of origin, Iraq and Syria. Visitors can transcend time and place through the authentic experiences shared on these tours. To schedule a tour with a Global Guide or follow a public Global Guide tour, view https://www.penn.museum/visit/tours/global-guides.

The Global Guides Tour Program was made possible by a generous grant from the Barra Foundation and in collaboration with HIAS Pennsylvania and the Nationality Services Center.
