Museum of Antiquities

The Museum of Antiquities was founded in 1974 by Ancient History professor Michael Swan and Art History professor Nicholas Gyenes. The collection began as a dozen replicas purchased from the Louvre that were kept in various locations across campus. Back in 1974, the Museum chose to begin its collection with Graeco-Roman art and has since expanded to include the cultures of ancient Egypt and the ancient Near East. It encompasses both original artefacts and replicas, including a diverse collection of original ancient glass, coinage, and pottery.
