ABOUT THE MUSEUM
Fall 2020 Semester Hours
Due to COVID-19, the museum is closed until further notice. In the meantime, we welcome you to explore our growing collection of virtual exhibits!
The Anthropology Laboratory has been receiving and curating collections for over 50 years. Previously located in College Hall, collections began arriving in 1964. Due to such a long period of collecting, the lab now holds artifacts from sites all over the world, including those within the Mid-Atlantic region in addition to lithic and ceramic collections from all over America. These include collections from Panama and from our own Philadelphia.
Temple University's Anthropology Museum resides in Gladfelter Hall on the lower level (main) floor. Housing over 200 collections, we have an undeniable global presence. Our mission is to educate students on various cultures and history, and provide an in-depth and entertaining learning experience to any and all who come visit us. There is no fee for entry, we hope to see you soon!
