The University of Wyoming Anthropology Museum is in the new Anthropology Building on the north side of campus at 12th and Lewis. The Museum offers exhibits related to the four subfields of Anthropology: Archaeology, Biological, Linguistic, and Cultural.


The main gallery follows the "Human Odyssey", from the evolution of humans in Africa several million years ago to the spread of our species throughout the world, and on to the Late Pleistocene entry into the New World. The Colby Mammoth Site, the Vore Buffalo Jump and other Wyoming archaeology sites are featured, with much of the Museum devoted to a celebration of the rich Native American heritage of the northern Plains region. Other displays featuring archaeological research and world cultural diversity can be found in hallway displays throughout the building.
The Museum is open only during regular UW hours, e.g. M-F 9:00-4:30, (summer hours 8:30 4:00 after May 11th). Please stop by any time when we are open, and extended group tours often can be scheduled. Please check with Museum Director Dr. Charles Reher (307-766-2208; arrow@uwyo.edu ) or the main Department Office (307-766-5136) for more information.
