The Anthropology Museum houses over 12,000 ethnographic and archaeological objects. The ethnographic collection has regional strengths in Southeast Asia, New Guinea, and the plains and southwest regions of North America. Ethnographic specimens from Africa, Mesoamerica, and South America are also represented.

The new Anthropology Museum is scheduled to open in August, 2011 in Cole Hall. The old Anthropology Museum in the Stevens Building is closed. For further information, please contact the Department of Anthropology or click here for more information
