Kelsey Museum of Archaeology

The renovation of space and the addition of air conditioning and fireproofing as well as an endowment for staff salaries within a university museum of archaeology

The Kelsey Museum of Archaeology (KMA) is a unit in the College of Literature Science and the Arts at the University of Michigan. As our mission statement makes clear the Kelsey Museum serves multiple audiences, ranging from the international scholarly community through the students of the University of Michigan to the general public. In all our programs we aim to integrate the needs of these audiences. With the current project we are striving to enhance our service to all our audiences, but in particular the general public, with the addition of enlarged and improved exhibit space and staff to produce and maintain state of the art public displays. Our challenge grant funding raising program seeks additional endowment to fund staff positions to realize the exhibit potential of our new space and also to help with refitting the old spaces to maximize their use for study and display.
