The Laboratory of Molecular Anthropology at Penn (LMAP) is housed in Room 421 in the Department of Anthropology, which is located in the Penn Museum of Archeology and Anthropology.

Built in 1889, the Museum opened as the Free Museum of Science and Art. It houses two floors of public galleries, the beautiful Widener Lecture Room, the Elkins Library (now Museum Archives), and a suite of laboratories and offices surrounding an Italian courtyard garden that is entered through an Asian-style gate. The Museum is one of the first fully electric public buildings in Philadelphia.

The Penn Museum respectfully acknowledges that it is situated on Lenapehoking, the ancestral and spiritual homeland of the Unami Lenape.
