Information:

Once housing an extensive archival collection of educational materials, the Museum of Education now serves exclusively as a museum with its exhibitions, publications, and programs portraying the perennial issues of education as a means to generate thoughtful discussion among members of the university community and general public.

Residing within the College of Education building, Wardlaw Hall, the Museum of Education includes a gallery, The Chester C. Travelstead Seminar Room, an outdoor patio, and closed-archival area totaling over 3000 square feet. By the standards of public museums, the Museum remains a small and highly-focused research/public programming entity. 

Museum Exhibition Hours:
Monday-Friday; 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

Current Exhibitions:

Readers' Guide to Education
