Welcome educators, students, and families!

Groups of all ages are welcome to visit the Michigan State University Museum. Our three floors of exhibits are open to the public seven days a week. When is the last time you saw dinosaurs from the Jurassic Period, a fur trader's cabin, or a tropical rainforest? These and other long-term exhibits, along with current exhibits, await your discovery.

For groups unable to visit the Museum in person, our Virtual Outreach Programs offer a unique Museum experience from the convenience of your classroom.

Please contact the Education Team at 517-432-1472 or email us to schedule your visit.

Group Visits

"Beautiful displays, artifacts and information."

"Your exhibits ARE the 5th grade science and some social studies curriculum. 
It's a great way for the students to see things first hand, in addition to reading
about them." (Elementary school teacher, Lansing School District)

"Exhibits and it is Michigan State!  Being at MSU adds a lot to my scholar's
interest and desire to come and learn." (Professor, Jackson Community College)

"I had forgotten what a wonderful gem the Museum is!"
(Elementary school teacher, Lansing School District)
