The Longyear Museum of Anthropology is Colgate's on-campus anthropology museum.
The Longyear Museum of Anthropology at Colgate University recognizes our collective responsibility to acknowledge our colonial history. Our campus sits on the traditional lands of the Onyota’a:ká: known as the People of the Upright Stone and Oneida Indian Nation of New York. The museum is actively committed to building relationships with the Oneida people and with other Native American tribes and nations. It is urgent that we consider the legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement that bring us together today.
Plan Your Visit
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visits to the Longyear Museum of Anthropology are currently limited and are available to the on-campus community by appointment only. Appointments to visit the current Makers and Materials of the Americas show in the Alumni Hall gallery will be available beginning April 7. Please schedule at least 48 hours in advance.
For the spring and summer of 2021, priority will be given to graduating seniors and faculty interested in incorporating the exhibit into their classes for the fall. We anticipate that the show will be open for regular viewing hours during the Fall 2021 semester.
