We're Open!

I'm happy to say the exhibit IYARE!: Splendor and Tension in Benin's Palace Theatre is now open and ready for you to visit!

It's at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia, at 3260 South Street, and open Tuesday through Sunday. Our giant website is also open--please check

The opening was great--we'll be adding footage and photos both here and on the website. A big and enthusiastic crowd--tell your friends and come see us!

Chief Eduwu Ekhator Obasogie, the Obasogie of Benin Kingdom, came from Nigeria for the IYARE opening and is shown here watching the cultural dancers. Thank you so much for gracing the occasion
