Since 1857, the MSU Museum has collected objects and specimens. The Museum’s collections support the University’s mission by providing a foundation for research, scholarship, and learning; they empower researchers seeking to answer questions and create solutions; they facilitate outstanding undergraduate, graduate, and professional education; and they advance outreach and engagement activities that are innovative and lead to a better understanding of our world.
The MSU Museum stewards over 1 million artifacts and specimens!
