THE COLLECTION • Great Journeys

"Had he travelled? It was likely, for no one seemed to know the world more familiarly; there was no spot so secluded that he did not appear to have an intimate acquaintance with it."

- Jules Verne, Around the World in 80 Days

The Museum of World Cultures' online collection highlights artifacts from Africa, Latin American and the Pacific Cultures, as well as other regions of the world. Though only a sampling of our entire collection, it is our hope that this web site will serve as a valuable stop on your learning tour.

Artifacts displayed online are documented and catalogued in internal databases, then converted to web pages through CONTENTdm, a digital image management software package.

The collection has largely been built by the gifts we have received from local citizens, friends of the University and other donors. To learn more information about donating to the collection, click here.
