The exhibits cover a variety of anthropological topics which reflect student interests and research and are continuously changing. They bring together the academic and professional learning of Museum Studies students.

From their knowledge of anthropology, students:

  • research and develop a relevant topic
  • use objects, pictures and text to tell anthropological stories from the Museum's collections and loans from elsewhere
  • learn about object preservation, time and money budgeting, exhibit construction resources and techniques, and evaluating the viewer's experience within the museum setting.

The exhibits that result from this process are displayed in a variety of places at the University of Denver: the Museum of Anthropology Gallery, Driscoll Center, and Penrose Library.

Please see the University of Denver Museum of Anthropology's Flickr page for photos of recent events and exhibit.
