General Information

The Spurlock Museum is both an educational and a research institution. It shares its collection and information with the public through exhibitions, guided tours, special programs, events, and this website. It helps to extend the boundaries of knowledge through study of the objects it collects. It is a resource for scholars, students, and the public at large to learn about the Earth's inhabitants.

The Museum’s five feature galleries house exhibits representing peoples of the following cultures and geographic areas of the world: Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, and Africa; Ancient Greece and Rome; East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Oceania; Europe; and American Indian Cultures of North and South America.

Special exhibits, based in the Campbell Gallery, serve as a springboard for unique programs, tours, and special events.

Through our collections and educational programs, we help interpret the diversity of cultures through time and across the globe.
