Welcome to UMMA
The Museum of Anthropology is an international leader in research and student training. Our research collections include materials from many parts of the New and Old Worlds. The collections support undergraduate and graduate education, and a portion are displayed in the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History. This web site contains information about faculty research, the Museum's organization, and selected images from field work and collections.
