The Logan Museum houses approximately 15,000 ethnographic and over 200,000 archaeological objects from 129 countries and more than 600 cultural groups. Collections derive from research expeditions, field schools, gifts, exchanges, and purchases. Building upon a large collection originally exhibited at the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893, the museum has acquired many significant collections. Notable ethnographic collections include Native North and South American, Asian, Pacific, and African material. Particular strengths in archaeology include European Paleolithic, North African, Wisconsin, Great Plains, Southwestern U.S., Mesoamerican, and South American collections. The museum continues to acquire collections on a highly selective basis and conducts and sponsors extensive research and educational use of these collections. We invite you to explore these collections on this website.
