What a beautiful campus!! You can feel the energy and excitement. Great performing arts venue: The Annenberg Center. Great museum: in the new Smithsonian book that details the history of the world in 1000 artifacts [200 are in the Penn museum]. Interesting art museum: ICA - The Institute for Contemporary Art.
