Museum of Anthropology

The CSUSB Anthropology Museum was founded in 2000. Located within the Social and Behavioral Sciences Building on the main CSUSB campus, the breathtaking gallery space provides expansive views of the surrounding San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountains.


The mission of the Anthropology Museum is to serve as a teaching laboratory for Museum Studies Certificate students, who gain hands-on experience in collections management, exhibition planning, curation, and museum administration. The Museum additionally provides space for the presentation of exhibitions that illustrate and interrogate the cultural contexts and meanings of community histories, events, identities, and behaviors – locally, across the world, and over time – and other anthropological perspectives on topics of interest.
