What We Do


Museum scientists study the history, evolution, and diversity of the universe, the Earth, and its inhabitants. We make new discoveries and share them with our communities through presentation, publication, and programming.


Incorporating both ethnography and archaeology, the Department of Anthropology deals with the study of humans and the cultural, environmental, and social factors that affect them.
