Join Penn Alumni Education and the Penn Museum for a behind-the-scenes tour of this exclusive world premiere exhibition. Discover what was behind the legendary story of King Midas and his golden touch.

In 1957, the Penn Museum excavated a spectacular tomb believed to be the final resting place of King Midas’ father Gordios. Dated to about 740 BCE, it was a treasure trove of spectacular objects from the time of Midas. This world premiere exhibition, developed by the Penn Museum, includes over 120 of those objects from Turkish museums. Tickets are limited and non-refundable.

Faculty lecturer: C. Brian Rose, James B. Pritchard Professor of Archaeology and Curator-in-Charge of the Mediterranean Section of the Penn Museum
