The Museum of Anthropology is located on the ground floor of Ellis Library (1020 Lowry St, Columbia, MO 65203). The museum is temporarily closed for construction in this new location with expectations of reopening later in 2022.

Permanent exhibits focus on Native American cultures from throughout North America. Rotating exhibits cover all fields of anthropology and archaeology.

The Museum’s archaeological collection is the largest holding of prehistoric Missouri artifacts in the world. It includes items ranging from 9,500 B.C. to modern times. The Museum holds thousands of objects from many cultures around the world, including the Grayson Archery Collection, which is the world’s most comprehensive archery collection over 5,800 archery related objects.
