This museum may not be open to the public until the fall of 2015, but the offerings in the museum store are sure to get other people wondering WHERE you got the NEAT necklace!

One of my favorite places on the MU campus. The Museum of Anthropology has excellent exhibits. Great for school aged kids and adults and a wonderful learning experience. Kudos to MU for your efforts.

A great place to take budding artists for a short museum tour. Not so overwhelming as a large museum. Just right for a 30-60 minute look.

Not your typical museum. A good place to take a middle school or high school age youth for peeking their interest in Greek Mythology or history.

The museum is tucked away in a small area. The items they have on display are well organized, but it would be nice if they could expand. I'm sure the college has more items that could be displayed if the space were available.
