MU’s Museum of Anthropology

MU is home to an anthropology museum that is one of the Midwest’s few and Missouri’s only.

The Museum of Anthropology is located on Francis Quadrangle in Swallow Hall. Associate curator Candace Sall said it offers students and the public a place to learn about the heritage of the Missouri area and broaden their cultural horizons.

Sall said with many of the artifacts it is possible to make connections with the modern world and find things that have remained somewhat constant through cultures and time.

“What’s old is new, what’s new is old,” Sall said.
