Matson Museum of Anthropology
Located on the second floor of Carpenter Building on Penn State's campus, the Matson Museum of Anthropology is a small but impressive museum. Visitors can view a variety of archaeological exhibits drawn from the museum's collection of objects from throughout Pennsylvania and around the world. The collection's emphasis is on regional artifacts and items from Mesopotamia, Mexico, and Latin America. There are also items from central Asia and a few displays feature replica bones of human ancestors to highlight evolution.
