About Us

The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is Brown University’s teaching museum.  A resource across the university, we inspire creative and critical thinking about culture by fostering interdisciplinary understanding of the material world.  We provide opportunities for faculty and students to work with collections and the public, teaching through objects and programs in classrooms, in the gallery in Manning Hall, and at the Collections Research Center.

The museum offers exhibits, public lectures, performances, symposia, festivals, and a broad range of programs and events for all ages.  The Museum's Collections and Research Center and offices are located in Bristol, RI.  The Museum exhibitions are located at Manning Hall on the Brown University campus in Providence, RI.
