The finds from excavations sponsored by the University of Michigan in Egypt and the Middle East constitute the majority of the objects in the Kelsey Museum, most of them dating to the Roman period. In most cases, the original excavation records are also stored at the Museum. In addition, the Museum contains a representative collection of Classical, Egyptian, and Middle Eastern objects, dating from the Neolithic period to the Middle Ages, and an important collection of archival photographs.
Please note that not all objects are on view at all times. If you are interested in seeing a particular object or collection, please email the Registry Department to ask about its availability.
