The Objects are coming!!! The Objects are coming!!!

Last Tuesday, the objects that will be a part of the exhibit from the Instituto Hondoreno de Anthropologia e Historia arrived. The exhibit will not only feature objects from Penn’s collections, but also the Honduran Institute, the Peabody Museum, and personal collections. During the first week of March, museum staff, as well as a few students, traveled to Copan where they spent the week preparing the objects for the long journey to Philadelphia. Objects could have taken up to four hours to pack, to ensure that no damage would occur to them during their journey. After careful packing, the objects made their way safely to the loading dock at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Anthropology and Archeology. There, museum staff, courier, and movers worked together to move the crates of objects as safely as possible.

Check out the images below to see a part of the process of unloading them!
