Celebrated on the third Thursday in February, Anthropology Day celebrates the field of anthropology and its many disciplines. As a cultural anthropology museum, we look at the ways culture affects individual experience to learn about the knowledge, customs, and institutions of a people. 

From the power of secrets to the effects of colonialism, our exhibits and programs illustrate the intersection of our shared human experience. We hope to create a space for all to reflect and learn about personal, cultural, and societal topics – things that make us all human.

Experience humanity through immersive exhibits at the Museum.
