The MSU Museum is an innovative and experimental collaboratory that exists to catalyze creativity. Here, people can freely explore, express, and experiment with ideas across various disciplines and interests, indulging their natural curiosity about the world. The Museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and holds the distinction of being the state's first Smithsonian Affiliate. Since 1857, the Museum has been collecting objects and specimens, and creating exhibitions that reflect our shared histories and experiences. These collections and exhibitions serve as catalysts for teaching, learning, and research, establishing a dynamic collaboratory for student and faculty success.
