Interesting little museum. They give the history of the acquisition of the collection, which was very interesting to read about. I loved the textile exhibition and how it was presented. They have some very nice pieces there! I recommend visiting while in Beloit!
The Logan is a treasure for those interested in anthropology and archeology. It is also valuable for those interested in ancient Native American life. It is free, fascinating, and easy to get to. Plan several hours there. I only wish I was closer.
This is a stop truly worth your time if you have an interest in anthropology. The museum is small but the exhibits are rare and educational.
I took my grandkids here when they were visiting for something different to do as we always try and do educational things as well, and they loved it. So many things to see and look at. Was just very cool
Located on the campus of Beloit College the Logan Museum of Antropology has a wide and varied collection of artifacts from around the world.

The best part about it is the students curate the collections as part of their studies. I made me want to go back to school myself! I especially liked the room which had so much displayed in the round. To be able to see that much of the collection is really rather special.

Beloit College is the site of many very evident mounds from native peoples of this area. The anthropology museum not only has a large collection from this period, but from many major cultures that only larger museums have. It is the case that three times the space would be necessary to fully display and label all the items. Yet, there... 更多
Vaulted ceiling, floor to ceiling displays. The collection that I was able to see before the fire alarm went off ranged from pre-Colombian to Native American, to African and New Guinean tribal masks. I was almost finished after 30 minutes but only got to the main exhibit hall before I was evacuated. Fun adventure.
It's a wonderful display of artifacts accompanied by interesting information. It is a see-and-read type of museum with a narrow scope of items to look, so it's not a place where kids can interact with displays or really appreciate the content of the exhibits.
