Opening March 16, the multi-million dollar reinstallation of the permanent classical galleries at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, presents the Museum's unique classical collections in a modern, thematic context and shows how these cultures continue to influence and inspire our world today. The Etruscan World gallery will be the only comprehensive exhibit of Etruscan objects currently on display in the United States.

More than 1,000 ancient artifacts are on display--including marble and bronze sculptures, jewelry, metalwork, mosaics, glass vessels, gold and silver coins, and pottery of exceptional artistic and historical renown--drawn from the Museum's outstanding Mediterranean collection of more than 30,000 objects, dating from 3,000 B.C. to the 5th century A.D. Of special importance are artifact groups from the Etruscan tomb groups excavated at Narce and Vulci, Roman statuary from the Sanctuary of Diana Nemorensis on the shores of Lake Nemi, south of Rome, and sculpture and architectural decoration from the Museum's own excavations at Minturnae, north of Naples.

Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. Closed Mondays and holidays. Admission donation is $5 for adults; $2.50 for senior citizens and students with ID; free to Members, PENNcard holders, and children 6 and under. From now through May 18, 2003 the Museum is free to the public on Sundays.
