Day of the Dead

Philadelphia celebrates the Day of the Dead (or Día de los Muertos) at the Penn Museum, a center for cultural exploration. Traditional music, dance performances, storytelling, puppetry and crafts pack the family-friendly schedule, and the colorful altars are the stars of the show. The traditional Mexican holiday honors loved ones who have passed with upbeat celebrations.
