Ancient and Premodern
While the museum‘s ancient and premodern collections are neither chronologically or geographically comprehensive, they are broad and rich. In keeping with the idea that individual objects are representative of a specific time and place, the objects on view (with one exception) occupy separate vitrines and pedestals. As a whole, they symbolically reflect the value of learning about diverse societies and cultures through the objects stewarded by academic museums.
