Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum
Established in 1976 as the University Museum, the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum changed its name in 2001 to reflect its primary focus on art, culture and regional history. The Museum’s collections represent three general areas; 1) archaeology, 2) history, and 3) fine arts. The archaeological holdings number approximately 10,000. Excavated in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Thomas Beckwith from a limited number of sites on his farm outside of Charleston, Mo., the Mississippian-era objects; vessels, bowls, other pottery pieces and projectile points, form one of the outstanding collections of its type. The history collections have a strong military emphasis. The fine art collection has strengths in a number of areas including the Houck Statuary Collection, which consists of more than 40 pieces, which were shown originally at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair. The collections are available to scholars and students conducting academic research. The museum also provides changing exhibitions, didactic displays, and educational programs for the University community and general public.
