You have probably walked by it a million times without realizing it while walking around campus. You know that building right by Beaumont Tower, across the street from Old and the Main Library? That’s it. That’s the MSU Museum.
What’s super awesome about the MSU Museum, a Smithsonian Institution Affiliate, is that it doesn’t charge admission. A donation is always appreciated though.
To be specific, the museum is located on West Circle Drive, immediately east of Beaumont Tower and just north of the Main Library. Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) buses stop within short walking distance of the MSU Museum. It is open 9am-5pm Monday-Friday, 10pm-5pm Saturday, and 1-5pm on Sunday. The museum is closed on University holidays and holiday weekends. So if you find yourself in that area of campus with a little free time, you should definitely stop by and check it out.
