Teaching Museum at Beloit College
Hands-on learning in a world-class anthropology museum.
The Logan Museum of Anthropology is one of two teaching museums at Beloit College. The collections are central to the curriculum of Beloit College and the museum has served as a student laboratory and center of experiential learning since its founding in 1894.
Student involvement through the Anthropology Department, Museum Studies Program, museum assistantships, Curating & Communicating Career Channel, field opportunities and course integration of collections make the museum a unique learning resource.
Each year over 1,000 students from diverse disciplines makes use of the museum’s exhibits and collections for research, the inspiration for original works, or the practice hands-on skills in object preservation.
Beloit College is located on the ancestral homeland of Indigenous peoples, and we respectfully acknowledge the Ho-Chunk, Meskwaki, Potawatomi, Sauk, and their predecessors who stewarded this land. We acknowledge the Indigenous landscape we occupy and the colonial collections we steward, and strive to decolonize our practice.
