Theme: Around the World

By nature, human beings are alike. By practice, they become different. Confucius

What is a world cultures museum? From statues to armor, mummies to masks, we exhibit artifacts that illustrate the shared challenges of humanity and celebrate the diverse ways cultures respond to them. Many of our tours address the factors that influence the needs of body, mind, and spirit and, in turn, the ways in which human beings live differently.
