The UNI Museum is comprised of the University Museum (a museum of nature and culture) and the Marshall Center School (a restored historic one-room schoolhouse). They are administered by the Department of Museums & Collections at the University of Northern Iowa, within the Rod Library.

With an international collection of over 75,000 items, this natural history museum opens a "window on the world"---from shells to mastodon bones, African antelope to Peruvian textiles.

Artifacts Collections

The Department also serves in an advisory role to academic departments for teaching collections across campus.
