The Secret Life of Things: Sixty Years of Museum Anthropology at Wayne State

 

In celebration of the Gordon L. Grosscup Museum of Anthropology's 60th Anniversary, we present a new exhibit, The Secret Life of Things: Sixty Years of Museum Anthropology at Wayne State University. This anniversary exhibit, which opened on November 8, 2018, features 60 notable objects from the Museum's vaults that reflect the breadth and depth of this institution's global collections, local history, and associated personalities.

As an assemblage, these 60 objects showcase the diversity of cultures, technologies, and histories represented in the Museum's extensive ethnographic, archaeological, and archival collections.

Since its founding in 1958 the Museum of Anthropology has hosted numerous exhibits and provided hands-on research and training opportunities for generations of students, faculty, and community members.

The Museum is open Tuesday - Thursday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m and Friday noon - 8 p.m.  Admission is free.

For group visits and guided tours, please e-mail the museum to schedule your visit.
