Maps & Directions
The Michigan State University Museum is located in East Lansing at 409 West Circle Drive, immediately east of Beaumont Tower and just north of the main library.
Construction and detours: 2013 West Circle Steam Loop Project
Michigan State University uses steam to heat campus buildings. The steam is generated at the T.B. Simon Power Plant on south campus and distributed to most campus buildings via an intricate network of steam tunnels. Some of the steam tunnels are in need of repair to avoid failures of steam delivery to campus buildings.
The 2013 work on West Circle Drive is the second segment in a four-segment program to replace the deteriorating steam tunnels. Additional core infrastructure improvements will be made in conjunction with the steam upgrades, including water main, telecommunication and electrical upgrades.
Important note for visitors:
*Kalamazoo Street will be closed from the Sparty Intersection north and West Circle Drive from the Beal Intersection east to the MSU Library.
*Northbound campus traffic will be directed to Farm Lane to access north campus.
*West Circle Drive will become two-way from Linton Hall to the Library so that the MSU Museum, Library, and Olds Hall will be accessible from Auditorium Road and from East Circle Drive.
