Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology

Satellite Cases

Small-scale Exhibits around the Brown University Campus.

Along with exhibitions in the Manning Hall Gallery, the Haffenreffer Museum also hosts student-curated satellite exhibits on the Brown University campus. These are usually rotated twice a year, and include just one case in each location. If you are a Brown University department that would like to host a satellite exhibit, please email HaffenrefferMuseum@brown.edu.
