Mission

The mission of the Museum of Art and Archaeology at the University of Missouri-Columbia is to provide access to original works of art and artifacts through the development of the permanent collection and to preserve and maintain all objects in its care. The Museum uses its resources to make its collection physically available to its constituents through public display or by special arrangement. The Museum also uses its resources to make its collection intellectually accessible by studying and researching its holdings and making the results available to its audiences. The art and artifacts the Museum collects and displays must be historically and culturally significant and relevant to the audiences it serves. A "relevant" object is understood to be one that enhances teaching, is suitable and of sufficient interest for research by faculty, students, and other scholars, and is of cultural significance to the broader community.

I love the ancient sculpture castings and was blown away by the archery exhibit.

Incredible art and artifacts. It was free, and there were tons of things to see. However, there is very minimal information in the archaeology and anthropology section. I really wish there was more information on what the items were, where they were discovered, what they are used for, etc.

Huge collection and a wonderful array of pieces. Hidden gem in Colimbia!

The museum of art and anthropology are on the ground floor and first floor in the same building. Both are excellence of art. I loved it too much.

Note that is museum is not on the main campus, but at Mizzou North. The museum isn't large, but it is free and has a surprisingly diverse array of art. Cool medieval/renaissance art, and a lot of artifacts and sculptures from different eras on the archaeology end (check out the mummy shroud). A good way to kill an hour or two, and it looks like they will be adding on to it .
