If you have interest in ancient history, this museum is fantastic - if you don't, then this museum will change that! Egyptian and Roman artifacts and items are particularly impressive but there is a lot more to see. Well worth a stop!

Small but interesting and free. Tucked away right in the center of UM campus. Fun for a short visit.

Went with a friend to a lecture. It was very well presented. The prof was not arrogant nor made those of us lacking a deep knowledge of archeology welcome and did a very interesting presentation! So nice this museum is close and open to public.
