Faculty from various departments have used the Museum and its collections as a resource for assignments, worksheets, scavenger hunts, writing prompts, as well as a catalyst for developing skills such as perception, evidence-based observation, critical thinking, and visual analysis. Please contact us for more information on how to integrate a visit to the Museum with your class or if there is any way we can help you use the Museum and its resources to meet your course goals.
Museum Galleries are CLOSED.
The Museum is preparing to move to a new location at the lower east level of Ellis Library in the center of the MU campus.
Reopening date is as yet unknown. It is hope that the galleries will be open by Spring/Summer 2022.
"I still remember the feeling of awe and disbelief when I was alone and walked in the room with those casts." --Ruth Tofle, chair of architecture, winner of the 2013 distinguished faculty award from the MU Alumni Association
