Pop-Up Museum

November 25, 2022 – December 31, 2022

Pop-Up Museum

Included with admission. Dates to be confirmed.

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. Get a closer look at a selection of artifacts from the penitentiary's archives. Topic and featured artifacts to be announced.
