The Museum is not large and its purpose is mainly for teaching, at both the undergraduate and the graduate level. It bolsters the collection of ancient objects with digital images and information, much of which is drawn from the University's Excavations at Isthmia in Greece.
We invite teachers at all levels of the curriculum to bring their students to the Museum or encourage them to come anytime during public opening hours. This includes teachers at OSU, but also those in K-12 in Central Ohio. We invite you to stop by the Museum yourself and look at the material we have on display and on our storage shelves. You can also talk with a member of our staff about how we can plan something special for them. Classes in ancient civilization, history, and art will certainly want to plan a visit to the Museum, but courses in many other areas can also benefit from the displays that focus on problem-solving, methods, or how we can learn about the past from material evidence.
If you wish to schedule a class visit to the Museum or discuss the educational program, contact the Department of History.
