Your University Museum
Our Museum is volunteer-operated and admission is free. Museum Studies students not just staff the Museum, but also produce all exhibitions and related educational and public programming. Visit our blog and follow us on facebook!
The Museum also houses an extensive antiquities collection, including: the Sutro Egyptian Collection, more than 1,000 artifacts from ancient Egypt spanning Pre-Dynastic to Roman times; the Lindgren Coin Collection, more than 500 Greek and Roman coins; the Rietz Collection of Ancient Food Technology, donated by the California Academy of Sciences; three Amarna period sculptures, donated by the Mansoor and Ward families; and the Bourne Collection of Roman pottery from Tunisia. Access to the collections is by special arrangement only with Prof. Linda Ellis, Senior Curator, during the academic year (September through May). Get breaking news from Prof. Ellis on twitter!
