*Note: The Museum of Anthropology is currently under renovations. The listed information below are examples of previous exhibits that may or may not return when the museum reopens. Please check back for current available exhibits.

We engage our museum visitors by refreshing our exhibits frequently and creating new exhibits once or twice a year. Our exhibition conceptually links themes from anthropology through material culture. We emphasize continuity between exhibits and promote appreciation of cultures and a deeper understanding of cultural processes.
