The Kelsey Museum of Archaeology is located on the central campus of the University of Michigan. It occupies two connected buildings: Newberry Hall, a 19th-century stone building on State Street across from Angell Hall, which houses our administrative offices and classrooms, and the William E. Upjohn Exhibit Wing on Maynard Street, which opened in 2009 and houses our permanent galleries and rotating exhibitions.

The Kelsey is open every day but Monday, and admission is free. We encourage you to visit our galleries, view our special exhibitions in person and online, and learn about our collections and our history by exploring this website. The Kelsey provides a range of programs and resources for university audiencesK–12 educators and schools, and the general public. Visit our Events page to learn more about the many tourslectures, and activities we offer. We hope to see you soon!
