Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology

103 Kroeber Hall
Berkeley, CA 94720

510-643-1191

Phoebe A. Hearst’s original vision for the museum was “as a great educator” dedicated to “the dissemination of knowledge among the many” and to “giving the people of California every educational advantage.” After more than a century of service, we continue to be guided by that vision.

Through ongoing integration of multiple perspectives and the active stewardship of global archaeological, biological and ethnographic collections, the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology supports scholarly and community-based research and provides exhibitions, educational experiences and cultural programs that strengthen and connect the communities of UC Berkeley and the Bay Area. The Hearst Museum is a place where visitors gain a deeper understanding of diverse responses through time and across cultures to humanity’s fundamental questions, challenges and opportunities.

The Museum's inaugural exhibit, "People Made These Things: Connecting with the Makers of Our World," is now open in its renovated public gallery.
