Pick Museum of Anthropology

The museum serves as a teaching museum for the university, providing opportunities for students and faculty to conduct collections research, co-curate exhibitions and enrich curriculum with object-based learning. Special exhibitions promote cultural awareness and solidarity in support of global social justice. Programs and events invite campus and community audiences to explore human and cultural diversity with the museum.

Experience all the museum has to offer! Drop in for a visit, schedule a tour or attend a special event. Researchers are also welcome to schedule a special collections visit.

Note: the cost of admission to the museum is free, but parking in the NIU visitor lot is $5 per vehicle.

We look forward to seeing you at the Pick!
