The Museum of Peoples and Cultures exists to serve the academic mission of BYU and care for the anthropological, archaeological, and ethnographic collections in the custody of the University.

The Museum began as a repository for the Department of Anthropology, whose expeditons were actively generating collections as early as the 1960s. Now, the museum is home to anthropolgical artifacts from cultures around the world.

Exivitiions are created by Brigham Young University students working under the direction of the BYU Department of Anthropology. The collections of the Museum of Peoples and Cultures specialize in five main areas: The Great Basin, The American Southwest, Mesoamerica, South America, and Polynesia.
