The MSU Museum sparks curiosity, excites imagination, and opens us to the worldâ€™s knowledge. Each year, thousands of visitors explore the Museumâ€™s three floors of interactive permanent and changing exhibitions that highlight only a small part of the Museumâ€™s collection of nearly 1,000,000 objects and specimens. Traveling exhibitions bring innovative research to museums, schools, and community centers within Michigan and throughout the world, while K-12 educators borrow education kits to bring the Museum into their classrooms. Creative programming and experts working with communities engage the public beyond the Museumâ€™s walls. Since its founding in 1857, the MSU Museumâ€™s researchers and curators have undertaken robust research and fieldwork that makes a difference in what we know about the natural world and human creativity. Scholars on and beyond campus use the Museumâ€™s collections in world-class research. MSU faculty and students together engage with collections in their courses. Students gain invaluable professional experience by working in the Museumâ€™s various departments. Within its galleries and collections, and beyond its walls, the MSU Museum, Michiganâ€™s first affiliate of the great national Smithsonian Institution, embraces the Universityâ€™s mission to advance knowledge and transform lives.
