Anthropology Museum

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 Americas. 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 Plains and Rocky Mountains. Other displays featuring archaeological research and world cultural diversity can be found in hallway displays throughout the building.

The Anthropology Museum is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday during the academic year. During the summer, hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
