The Penn Museum houses over one million objects, 99% of which are not on display; however, this does not mean that these collections sit idle. The Key Marco collection, as well as a number of other spectacular collections from the American South, are regularly used by researchers and instructors at the Penn Museum. The Key Marco materials are particularly important due to the unusual circumstances surrounding their preservation. This talk will highlight the collection's importance to the Museum's educational mission by providing examples of how the collections have been used in undergraduate, graduate, and public education.
