MAJOR RENOVATIONS AT THE MUSEUM FOR FALL 2014

After months of major renovation the University Museum now has a new Continuum Gallery for educational programming and exhibitions, new front doors for both North and South Hall, a state-of-the-art Auditorium and dynamic new exhibits.  Similarly, the Museum’s Archive Building has undergone renovation resulting in two new climate control units to protect some of the most sensitive objects in a collection numbering over 70,000 objects.

2014 is the 40th anniversary of the University Museum’s location in Faner Hall.  A year-long exhibition opening this Fall looks at the history of this iconic campus building.  The Museum, and the University at large, celebrates theirs 140th  Anniversary in 2014.
