Wake Forest University Museum of Anthropology

This museum explores many different peoples and their cultures from ancient to modern times. Permanent exhibits showcase objects such as tools, clothing, art, and religious objects. Using these objects in their lesson, school groups can learn about Native American, Asian, and African cultures. Upper-level programs offer a chance to explore and investigate traditions around the world from religion to currency. An archaeology program introduces groups to excavation methods, artifact identification, and how archaeological findings have been used to understand past cultures and enrich current ones. The MOA also offers scavenger hunts, exhibits on collecting, family days, and outreach kits.
