Pop-Up Museum

December 17, 2021 – January 2, 2022

Pop-Up Museum

Standard Admission. 

The archives of Eastern State Penitentiary are packed with historic treasures that the public rarely sees. Thousands of photographs, stacks of prisoner-written magazines, and other artifacts are numbered and tucked carefully into museum-grade storage in the site’s administrative offices. Historic site 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 Penitentiary presents Pop-Up Museum. A selection of artifacts from Eastern State's archives will be on display. Theme to be announced.

Pop-Up Museum is included with standard admission.
