Mission statement

The Museum of Cultural and Natural History serves the university, local, and regional community by providing educational opportunities that inspire curiosity, imagination, and memory. Based on its collections of cultural and natural history, the museum interprets and communicates to the widest possible audience a broader understanding of science and the humanities. The museum supports research and teaching in cultural and natural history and serves as a laboratory for students enrolled in the museum studies program. Our goal is to promote sustainable relationships between peoples and their environments by encouraging respect for cultural and natural diversity.
