The museum is an amazing resource on campus with a diverse collection that could be incorporated into many classes. Furthermore, the staff will bend over backwards to help you incorporate the museum into your class and make a visit simple and easy. Students said they enjoyed the trip and that it was meaningful for them to have seen the artifacts in person.
