About the Museum

Temple Anthropology Museum and Laboratory has been receiving and curating collections for over 50 years. Previously located in College Hall, collections began arriving in 1964 and currently 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.
